Met Office forecast goes from very bad to extremely bad.

Remember the forecast the Met Office put out for the UK?

BBQ summer and hose pipe bans, and we know what happened.

Floods and cold weather prevailed, with the wettest summer in more than a century, and another forecast, using the new $40BN super computer, was in the can.

Maybe Autumn will see a change for the Met office? I mean if they keep saying it’s coming eventually it will, right?

Nope.

Britain is set to suffer its wettest autumn  for over a decade with more rain and gale winds sparking further flood  warnings.

After the UK’s wettest summer in a century,  England and Wales are now on course for the wettest start of autumn for 12  years, the Met Office has said.

The southwest has seen five times the usual  amount of rain so far this, drastically increasing the risk of floods for the  forthcoming week.

The Met Office warned of ‘no let up’ with  showers tomorrow and Monday, followed by blustery showers on Tuesday and rain  for all on Wednesday – with a severe weather alert issued for floods in the  southwest.

The outlook to October 27 said: ‘Continuing  very unsettled with rain or showers for most parts, occasionally heavy, with  strong winds.’

England and Wales were drenched by 132mm of  rain from September 1 to October 10 and with no sun on the horizon, the UK is on  track to push the September and October rainfall total to around 220mm. This is  the highest since 2000, the wettest autumn on record, when 302mm  fell.

St Mary’s, Isles of Scilly, has had 124mm of  rain – compared to the 11-day October average of 27mm. Cornwall’s 107mm at  Camborne is more than 300 per cent of the usual 34mm.

This autumn’s downpour is especially dramatic  as a majority of the rain has fallen in the past three weeks. Met Office  forecaster Dave Britton said: ‘The first three weeks of September saw relatively  little rain.’

British Weather Services tweeted: ‘Three  significant bands of rain will fall over the next week, with already high river  levels and water tables.’

Met Office forecaster Charlie Powell said: ‘There’s no let up in the pattern, with bands of rain next week interspersed  with drier periods.’

The Met Office added: ‘Ground in the  South-West remains saturated and the threat of further heavy on Wednesday means  the public are advised to be aware localised flooding is a risk.
