Heavy rain warning from the MET Office

Few people find November pleasant...

The Anglo-Saxons called November 'wind monath', because it was the time when the cold winds began to blow.

The poet T.S. Elliot went one further: "Since golden October declined into sombre November. And the apples were gathered and stored, and the land became brown sharp points of death in a waste of water and mud".

At this time of year we can expect any kind of weather. If the wind is from the south it can feel almost like summer.

On this day in 1989 the temperature at Abergwyngregyn in Gwynedd soared to 18.3 Celsius but if the wind is from the North or East, then we can have a taste of winter.

On 9 November, 1921 the temperature in Welshpool, Powys plunged to minus 11.7 Celsius!

There's no sign of a heat wave or a big freeze on the horizon but it is going to turn milder and wetter on Thursday and Friday.

In fact on Friday a deep depression looks set to bring us a spell of heavy rain and strong to gale force winds.

This has prompted the Met Office to issue an advisory for heavy rain.

How much rain and how strong the winds will be depends on the exact track of the low pressure.

Keep an eye on the forecast and my blog over the next few days.
