Heavy showers forecast for Somerset but 'worst of weather is over'
Torrential downpours will give way to some sunshine as forecasters offered a glimmer of hope for the rain-drenched Westcountry.
According to the Met Office, the worst of the terrible weather is behind the region and today will see a brighter picture, for Cornwall at least.
A spokesman for the Exeter-based organisation said that it would be a different tale for Devon and Somerset.
“It is an improving picture,” she said.

“West of Plymouth we have no rain on the forecast and for Cornwall it should be a bright and sunny day.
“But for East of Plymouth, including Exeter, Salcombe and Torquay it will be dark, heavy and cloudy.”
The rain in Devon and Somerset will be heavy at times, she said.
However, this will become more “fragmented and patchy” during the course of the day.
The temperatures will also be split, with Cornwall experiencing milder temperatures of between eight and 10 degrees.
Meanwhile in Devon it will be colder with temperatures between five and six degrees and in Somerset it will be positively chilly with the thermometer hovering around the three to four degrees mark.
The Met Office says that no weather warnings have been issued for the weekend and that “the worst of the weather is over.”
