AFTER a brief respite over the weekend, more wet and wild weather is predicted to be on its way to Worcester.
Heavy rain and gusts of almost 45mph are being forecast to arrive across Worcestershire during the early hours, lasting well into tomorrow morning.
The predicted severe weather comes after a mainly dry and sunny weekend that has seen water levels on the River Severn slowly begin to drop after the Christmas floods.
With much of the riverside remaining underwater, one adventurous man was pictured waterskiing on Worcester Racecourse on Saturday.
But the high water levels proved dangerous for others, with a man being rushed to hospital with hypothermia after falling into the swollen river at Diglis, in Worcester, at about 12.30am on Sunday morning.
Firefighters from Evesham, Worcester and Malvern rushed to the scene along with a water first responder team and used an inflatable boat to rescue him.
