THE worst of the rain is out of the way for today (Monday) across Somerset, according to the Met Office.

Following early morning downpours, things have settled down and we can even look forward to odd spots of sunshine.

But there's likely to be more rain at around 5pm and then overnight into tomorrow's morning rush hour.

There could be a wet start to Wednesday, with the rest of the day cloudy with a low chance of much rain.

Thursday and Friday are predicted to be dry and the weekend looks like being settled, with the best chance of some sun on Sunday afternoon.
