Up to half a month’s rain could fall overnight tonight (Sunday 29 December) – with stormy conditions set to continue well in to 2014, forecasters say.

Up to 40mm of rain will fall and will only start to clear around midday on Monday, predictions show.

The average rainfall for the whole of December in the west is 80-100mm.

The north west is one of the areas expected to bear the brunt of the appalling conditions.

Gusts of up to 55mph are also set to batter the country.

A Met Office spokesman said: “Wet and windy weather will arrive again overnight and into Monday morning for many parts of the UK.”

The Met Office said “wet and windy conditions” were set to continue throughout New Years Eve and into New Years Day.

It said conditions have been caused by a succession of low pressure systems which are set to continue throughout next week and into next weekend.
