IT'S good for gardeners and farmers but even more rain is forecast today and tomorrow.
With more than the average rainfall for the month falling in the last seven days, yet more is on its way according to Evening Star weather man Ken Blowers.
Mr Blowers said: “Over the last seven days 1.65 inches of rain has fallen.
“The 60 year average for May is 1.59 inches so we have gone over the average for the whole month in the first 13 days.”
Though police said yesterday they had no reports of flooding in the county, Mr Blowers predicted flooding is likely to become a problem as the wet weather continues.
He said: “The wet weather has come from a depression from the South West that is making its way across England to the North Sea.
