Flood warning amid heavy rainfall in south London and Surrey

Kingston Guardian: South London and Surrey have been battered by storms South London and Surrey have been battered by storms

Drivers in south London and Surrey are being warned amid heavy rain and fears of localised flooding.

A Met Office forecaster warned of flooding and "difficult driving conditions" as heavy rain continues to fall.

He said: "Heavy rain, locally very heavy, affecting many places this morning, leading to difficult driving conditions and a risk of localised flooding.

"Later, scattered heavy thunderstorms may develop where the rain clears, these thunderstorms most likely across Kent, Surrey and Sussex."

Temperatures would not go above 15C, he added, before thunderstorms struggled to pass this evening.

"Thunderstorms, most likely across the southeast of the area and also London, will only slowly fade away," he said.

"Elsewhere the rain will gradually become lighter and more patchy."

Tomorrow would see more rain, he said, before sunny intervals develop in the afternoon, mixed with scattered heavy showers.

He predicted a maximum temperature of 17C.

We always check with a relative who works for the London weather Centre before venturing out, if heavy rain is forecast, we telephone for a traditional London taxi to take us up town, fully insured, and drivers who speak perfect English.

Don't know if there's any truth in it but I received an email today telling me it's not the rain flooding us but the weight of all the illegals causing the country to sink.

If it's Mr. Fish and he says don't panic someone phoned to ask if there would be flooding and there won't be, then it's time to travel by the London Duck Duwk.

How is the cleaner at the Weather Centre supposed to advise you as to the weather?

Do what every normal person does in this country and look out of the window before venturing out.
If it is bright and sunny then happy days! If it is overcast then take an umbrella. It really is that simple (As you sound with your thinly veiled racism)
Anne Miles rhymes with Piles and for good reason, you really are a pain in the ar*e!
