The British 'summer' continues gloomily across Newbury today (Friday), under heavy, dark skies, with continuous rain forecast until later this evening (Friday).
The Met Office forecast is for continuous rain up to around 9pm this eve over the Newbury area.
Drivers are advised to take care, due to surface water on local roads and flash floods.
It could be time to dust off the barbecue over the weekend however, with drier conditions set to return over the next few days.
Weather from Saturday to Monday is likely to be a mixed bag, also according to the Met Office, with weather forecast over Newbury as mainly warm and humid, cloudy with some sunny periods and occasional showers.
