    Default Hows the weather down sarf?

    I'm going down to the swindon area on Tuesday and comming back on Wednesday with work, doing a bit of surveying on the railway. Whats the conditions like in this area and getting to it from the North (M5/M4)?

    Hope no-one on here is too badly affected btw.

    all cleared up from where i have been today around swindon and M4 was clear (didnt get as far as reading tho as thats where the problems started/was)
    what part/area of the railway you surveying as it might be the same part on the Farm where i live
    if so was flooded well bad down here but its gone now (only just)

    just west of swindon, Wooton Basset Junction to be exact. I know pangbourne quite well, a little north of where we will be, the river runs right next to the main road, shame as its a lovely town. I've looked at environment agency websites and searched others but cant find any decent info.

    I've also driven around Swindon today and the roads that were flooded on Friday are not flooded now. I think you should be ok.
    Just reading BBC's website:
    Water levels in the River Severn at Gloucester are running at a height of 34ft

    Yep, that whole area has been a nightmare. Down South, as in South Coast has been fine, been a beauuutiful sunny day today, bit of heavy rain the other day the other day, but nothing major. Yet only 20 miles away in Haywards Heath the other day they were flooded!!
