Gloucestershire braced for day of heavy rain
MORE heavy rain is in store for Gloucestershire tomorrow.
After sunny spells today, the weather will turn overnight and by 6am the downpours will be heavy.
There should be a reprieve from it by late afternoon.
But there are concerns that heavy rain could top up the already high river levels on the Severn between Tewkesbury and Gloucester.

A flood alert was still in place along the stretch, according to Environment Agency experts yesterday.
Dave Throup, regional manager, said: "The flood risk remains raised.
"Levels will remain high on the Severn and more rain is forecast on Friday.
"Defences are doing their work but levels will stay high due to heavy rain in Wales."
People can also expect it to be a little cooler than the milder days of late – temperatures will hover around 4C.
Then a colder front will move in with brisk winds at the weekend, bringing a further chill to the air.
Temperatures on Saturday will get no higher than 4C and by night it will drop down to freezing point or even -1C.
A sunny day will help to keep temperatures down.
On Sunday milder temperatures of around 8C will return, along with some light rain.
