Despite forecasts of wet and rainy conditions early on this week, dry conditions are predicted through the middle of the week, however, 12 flood alerts remain active by the Environment Agency, leaving the possibility of flooding open.
Last week, Met Office meteorologist Dan Stroud said: "We are expecting a cold front to sink south during the course of Saturday and it is going to really help clear the clouds.
"It is going to allow overnight temperatures to dip below zero and we are likely to see an increasing risk of overnight frost as we move into the early part of next week.
"Wrap up warm and close your curtains in the evening to help keep in the heat."
