What does the Met Office say?

According to the Met Office's long-range forecast, heavy rain is expected to continue between November 7 and November 21.

"The unsettled conditions of the past couple of weeks are likely to continue into the first week of this period," it reads.

"This means further rain in most areas, probably heaviest in the south or southwest. The east facing hills in northern England and Scotland may also see further heavy rainfall.

"Strong winds are expected to be associated with the rain at times, with the ongoing risk of gales, fairly typical for this time of year.

"Further into November, increasing spells of settled dry weather are a little more likely than before, especially in the north, and should these occur, winds could come from a more easterly direction, which could bring lower-than-average temperatures, but only a low risk for now."
