Flooding continues to impact much of the UK, leading to evacuations and travel delays just in time for the holiday season.
Heavy rain has lead to massive flooding issues across the UK of late, particularly impacting southwestern England and Wales.
While a majority of the flooding has resided, some parts of the region have not seen dry enough weather as of late to alleviate flooding, and in fact rains the last couple of days have led to additional flooding problems.
One example of a location that has seen well above-normal precipitation is Bristol, in southwestern England. In November rainfall during the first half of the month saturated the soil. When even heavier rain came during the second half of the November, there was no where for it to go. During November, Bristol saw over 300 percent of their normal rainfall on the month.
