More rain is expected today (Sunday, October 22), but it is unlikely to be as heavy as what we have seen recently.

The Met Office says: "Sunday promises to be a drier and brighter day than of late. The odd shower is expected, alongside lighter winds. Temperatures around the seasonal average."

Showers will also arrive from the south on Monday, October 23.
