In what has been a very unsettled start to 2018, it look as though the weather conditions are about to take a turn for the worse once again.

After months of snow, rain, wind and eventually sunshine, the weather is set to throw up another curve ball.

Following on from a week of glorious sunshine and high temperatures, the beginning of this week has seen a much cooler and cloudier weather front.

And today it set to get a whole lot worse, with hours of heavy rain predicted by the Met Office, with highs of just 13C.
