Two weeks of "better" weather - after rain today
The Westcountry is set for at least two weeks of better weather with a repeat of last week’s storm unlikely, say forecasters.
The Met Office has said that despite issuing a severe weather warning for rain for the region on Monday the next two weeks will mark a return to more seasonal weather.
Temperatures will hover around 9C and 10C in the day time, with bouts of rain and sometimes wind but nothing on the scale of what the region has had to endure in recent weeks.
The day will begin cloudy and wet with some heavy bursts of showers.

The band of rain will move away to to the east by around 5pm.
Helen Roberts, from the Met Office, said that despite 30-40mm of rain falling on some parts of the region today, the weather front will not be on the scale of Friday’s storm.
She said: “today will be a breezy and wet day. It will not be like the storms we have seen but there will be outbreaks of rain throughout the day.
“We do have a severe weather warning in place but that’s largely because of the fact the ground is so saturated and even a relatively small amount of rain has the potential to cause problems.
“But there is still a chance of 30-40mm of rain on higher ground.”
Thursday will be another wet and windy day but Ms Roberts said it appears the next couple of weeks will represent a move away from the storms of recent weeks.
She added: “The next couple of weeks are probably going to be fairly typical for the time of year.
Outbreaks of rain, at times a bit of wind but not anything like the storms we have seen.”
