Winter begins in earnest in UK

______________________________



6 Oct 08 - Britain on flood alert as soggy summer quickly turns to winter. The Environment Agency has issued flood warnings to 19 areas as winter began in earnest - with biting winds adding to cooling temperatures.

And forecasters say more heavy rain is set to follow the lashing the UK received over the weekend.

The depressing prediction came after four inches of rain fell in 24 hours in some parts of the country yesterday -  equivalent to a whole month's rain in a single day.

More heavy rain is expected tomorrow, with grey skies and drizzle predicted for Thursday and Friday

The heaviest rainfall fell in parts of Wales, with Capel Curig in Snowdonia recording 3.6ins yesterday.

The Midlands and South-East also had up to two inches of rain as a thick band of cloud came in from the west on Saturday night.
