When the f*** is it going to stop raining?

We’ve had ENOUGH, you hear us?

Right, whoever was complaining about it being too hot a couple of weeks ago, are you happy now? We’re cold, we’re drenched, our gardens are flooded. It’s wet AF in the UK right now, and we’re all asking one thing: when is this downpour going to give us a goddamn break?

Well sorry to be the bearer of bad news but the answer, we’re afraid, is not very soon. This coming Monday, rain is going to fall across the northeast, according to the Met Office, and also arrive from the west, for anyone who thought they were going to escape.

Persistent rain will continue on in western areas, progressing northeastwards, with some snow over Britain’s upland areas just to round off the week. Towards the end of November, showers will ‘dominate’ the UK, particularly western and northwestern areas. 

But it looks like there is a little glimmer of hope among the clouds. Though predictions for December are probably a bit unreliable at this point, the Met Office is expecting things to settle down a bit. Conditions should be drier and calmer, due to high pressure moving towards the UK. But wrap up warm, peeps, as it will get seriously chilly. 

ICYMI: snowstorms are heading towards the UK this weekend.

Plus: you can get 25 percent off this London-Edinburgh night train.
