BLUSTERY showers tearing across the county have signalled that autumn is well and truly here.
The cold and wet weather swept in on Sunday, drenching Suffolk with a barrage of downpours.
At 1pm yesterday, weather experts at WeatherQuest in Norwich recorded 18mm of rain had fallen at Wattisham on Sunday and into yesterday.
And forecasters at the Norwich-based weather service have said more blustery showers are on their way through today and tomorrow.
But forecaster Chris Bell told The Star the “worst is behind us”.
Speaking yesterday, he said: “The general idea is that today was going to see the worst of the rainfall.
“It has started to clear from the south and, as it does, things should improve across Suffolk.
“It is going to be breezy overnight and into tomorrow with showers, particularly in the afternoon.”
Mr Bell said an area of low pressure pushing up from southern Spain, across the Bay of Biscay and France has caused the change in weather.
“Now that the main area of rain is going away to the north things will calm down a bit,” he added.
“Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons will see some blustery showers but it is looking drier towards the weekend.”
Temperatures are set to hover around the 16C mark over the next few days.
