Weather forecast today – FLOOD warnings as temperatures PLUMMET thanks to Greenland 'cold-bubble' bringing 1C frost

FLOOD warnings are in place as Britain's miserable start to November continued.

Katharine Smith, Flood Duty Manager at the Environment Agency, said: "There is also a chance of renewed localised river and surface water flooding on roads and land in the north of England as a result of more rain.

"We are ready to respond where needed, as well as offering practical assistance and advice to local authorities leading on responses to surface water flooding incidents," she added.

The news comes as Brits face more miserable weather today, with a "cold-bubble" set to bring 75mph winds as November's wet conditions continue.

The UK awoke to a 1C frost this morning after 79mph Storm Aiden and ex-Hurricane Zeta capped one of the wettest Octobers on record.

Snow is forecast on hills in the North, the Met Office says.

    “I was very lucky that the engine managed to start and I could drive it out, but the inside is soaking wet.I can’t understand why the council didn't have the foresight to close the car park if they knew the Wharfe was going to flood.”
