WEATHERMEN were on red alert last night – after warning this blood-coloured sky means more storms and floods are heading our way.

The amazing picture was taken early yesterday by Stephen Huntley in Danbury, Essex.

Experts say it heralds extreme weather – like the adage “Red sky in the morning, shepherds’ warning.”

Thousands of householders are today bedding down for a weekend of torrential rain and flooding after the Environment Agency advised moving out pets and valuables in anticipation of the deluge.

The Midlands and South West are at high risk from the swelling rivers Severn and Trent, and the Government has advised the public to prepare emergency kits and tie down garden chairs.

An Environment Agency statement covering this weekend said: “We are warning people across the Midlands to prepare for flooding again over the next few days, as the latest weather forecast from the Met Office is predicting heavy rainfall.

“While everyone living in a flood-risk area should remain vigilant, we believe that flooding is especially likely to occur on the Severn and its tributaries north of Shrewsbury, and in Gloucestershire.

“Along the lower reaches of the Trent and its tributaries (Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire) we are expecting a slight worsening of the current situation.”

Heavy rain is expected to fall on the North of England and Midlands, with the East of England relatively untroubled.

The Agency had 56 flood warnings in place last night.

The Avon, Trent and Severn and Wye rivers, in the Midlands and South West, as well of the Thames in South Oxfordshire, are all subject to flood notices.

The Highways Agency has urged motorists to drive slowly and pack food and warm clothes in case they become trapped on a flooded road.

Rail services are disrupted in the South West, Powys and Hampshire with replacement bus and taxi services running.

I'd have to say my favorite (at least the one I can write here), is the old stanadard:

I Bet They'd Spell Yer Name...."     ::drinking::                ::drinking::                ::drinking::
