Rainfall of up to 50mm heading for South Holland, says Met Office




More heavy rain and thunderstorms are on the way for South Holland, according to weathermen.

After torrential rain brought flooding to roads, car parks and garages in parts of Spalding and Holbeach, there are warnings that wet weather will return to the area tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wednesday.

Up to 50mm of rain could fall in some areas and a spokesman for the Met Office warned people in South Holland to expect a "very wet period" overnight tomorrow.

The spokesman said: "Tuesday should get off to a fairly decent start, with bright, sunny spells, before showery rain later in the afternoon and early evening.

"But there will be heavy, thundery rain between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, with 20mm to 30mm rain due.

"However, in some areas this could be up to 50mm during what will be a very wet period.

"But things should improve into Wednesday morning, with bright, sunnier spells on Thursday and Friday.

"There may also be a few showed, but nothing as heavy or frequent as on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning."
