Throughout January temperatures have been unseasonably high going hand-in-hand with an increased amount of rain.
The Evening Star's weather guru, Ken Blowers, today said there is more of the same to come.
“The air is coming up from the sub-tropical Atlantic and the Azores.
“It is warm air and very moist because it's come up over hundreds of miles of sea so it picked up moisture and on arrival it produces more rain.
“We have seen temperatures of 55F (13C) and we've already had one inch of rain in the first nine days of the month when the average for the whole of January is 2.08 inches. It's getting very wet.

“And the temperatures are what you'd expect from an early day in April so it's absolutely getting crazy and it's extremely rare.
“But it's going to carry on for the foreseeable future.”
The Met Office is also predicating that the mild weather will continue for the next few weeks, with warmer weather remaining in Suffolk and many more rainy days during January.
