There is to be no respite from the December deluge.
That was the warning from Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens, as the last two days of the year look set to be hit by storms with more heavy rain.
It may not be as bad as Boxing Day but could again pose problems as the rain falls on sodden ground.
Mr Stevens, of Salendine Nook, said: “Gales will develop through Tuesday night with the gales becoming severe from the south during Wednesday morning with perhaps storm force gusts at times around 70mph over hills during the morning and 50-60mph elsewhere, with a moderation after midday.
“The rain will develop through Wednesday morning becoming heavy and persistent through Wednesday afternoon and evening. Most forecast models have totals through the 12-hour period of between 20mm and 30mm with some hills perhaps getting as much as 40mm to 50mm.

“This does present a danger from some local flooding again. Boxing Day rain brought 60mm+ in 24 hours. This is around half that but in a shorter period so the result will be rising rivers later Wednesday.
“The best advice is to remain vigilant around Wednesday afternoon and evening and overnight. Hopefully everything crossed the rivers should remain in their banks but a threat of flooding is there.”
Today is set to be much drier and brighter, with sunshine in the morning and early afternoon before cloud will start to push in from the west through the late afternoon and evening. Tuesday night is cloudy with spits and spots of rain in the wind which will reach gale force perhaps severe gale force by breakfast Wednesday. Gusts may well be 50-60mph widely and 70mph at times strong enough to cause minor damage and odd branch down.
Looking ahead, New Year's Eve will be sunny to start with a few showers then a band of heavier showers mid afternoon should clear eastwards for a mostly dry and chilly evening to bring in 2016. Temperatures will range between 7c during the day to around 4c by midnight.
New Year's Day will be bright and sunny to start but cloud will push in from the west as the day goes on with a cold south east wind developing by evening with rain later.
