The Meteorological Office, the Met Office to you and me, has issued an Amber Warning for rain along the Marches from midday tomorrow, Saturday. We are used to rain here. There has been a Yellow Warning for rain in place since yesterday. And you don’t need a warning to know it is wet out there. Today’s Amber Warning is more serious. We are promised a deluge of rain from midday Saturday until 6am on Sunday. At the moment river levels are low for the time of year so we are not yet expecting flooding from the Corve and Teme. But we all know how unpredictable these rivers can be, especially if drains back up into the streets. I have asked Shropshire Council to drop sandbags in Lower Corve Street and Temeside as a precaution.
