The Met Office weather forecast for Salisbury is predicting heavy rain for the city this weekend (October 31-November 1).

The UK as a whole faces a double whammy from two severe storms sweeping over the country in the next few days.

Storm Aiden is moving in on Saturday, followed by the last gasps of Hurricane Zeta on Sunday.

And it's on Sunday Salisbury is set to see the worst weather, according to the Met Office experts.

Saturday will see heavy downpours from 10am until 12pm. Then in the afternoon, the sun could breakthrough for a while.

Rain returns on Saturday night, before dominating Sunday.

Heavy rain is forecast right through Sunday morning, easing off a little, but then returning until 3pm.

Even after that rain is still expected, but less ferocious lashings of it.

It means hours of downpours, raising fears of flooding in some places.

By the afternoon on Monday things should dry out a bit, the forecast was predicting on Saturday morning.

At the time of writing no official weather warnings are in place for Wiltshire, which is some good news. There are yellow warnings covering other parts of the UK issued by the Met Office.

Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Martin Young said: “As the heavy rain and strong winds from Storm Aiden sweeps eastwards on Saturday, another system quickly follows on Sunday that contains the remnants of ex-Hurricane Zeta, bringing further heavy rain and strong winds.

“Given that this is falling on already saturated ground from what has been a wet October, there is an increased risk of flooding in some warnings areas.

“We’re urging people to keep a close eye on the forecast, flood alerts and warnings in their areas.”
