Tuesday 24 November

Windy and a spot or two or rain this morning. The wind will pick up further to gale force later today; severe gales are possible tomorrow. Seems we're finally getting a dose of the November storms up here, well after everybody else had them.

Although people are now being allowed back into their properties in Cumbria, more flooding could be on the way. The same weather system that is bringing gales to the Hebrides is propelling 4 inches of rain towards the Lake District. Tales of complete devastation in people's homes and businesses emerged throughout Monday.

More later.
