Southwest and Midlands braced as rain pours - with more to come next week.  I recorded 100.5mm in January (about 180% of average), but many parts have had much more - and it all goes straight into the rivers with ground in all parts completely saturated now.   And flood warnings as storm to wreak havoc in Eire too.
