Another (!) severe weather warning has been issued for Hampshire by the Met Office for Monday and Tuesday, with rain and gales expected from Monday night through to Tuesday morning, following on from the one issued for Sunday.
It marks a soggy start to May after what is set to be the wettest April on record.
The Met Office issued a yellow warning stating: "Outbreaks of rain, heavy and possibly thundery [weather], are likely to affect southern England and the southern half of Wales, late on Monday and during Tuesday.
'"The public should be aware that, following recent heavy rainfall, further localised flooding is possible, and there will also be difficult driving conditions at times.
"As we move through daylight hours on Tuesday the risk of heavy rain will gradually reduce."
Yellow is the first level of warning, with amber and red being the next two levels up.
The Environment Agency has also warned of localised flooding across the region this weekend. Flooding from rivers and surface water could also make driving conditions dangerous and people are being cautioned to take care.
The weather is expected to calm during the day on Tuesday and will hopefully return to the sunny conditions experienced here during daylight hours on Monday, with the weather warning being lifted.
As this rate the region will be suffering a drought of umbrellas.
