The Met Office has issued a series of new yellow warnings as more bad weather looks set to blight Britain this week.
Just hours after Storm Dennis battered the UK and left towns underwater, more rain and even snow is now on the way.
The government weather forecaster has issued a rain warning for Wales and a snow and ice warning for Scotland.
Wales has already been left badly hit by Dennis, with the south of the country seeing major floods with homes and high streets trapped.

But the Met Office warns another month’s worth of rain could fall on the country between 6pm Wednesday and 3pm on Thursday.
Its warning, stating more floods could be on the way, reads: “An Atlantic weather system arriving on Wednesday is expected to bring a further spell of rainfall which is likely to become particularly prolonged over areas of high ground.
“Whilst there is more uncertainty over the rainfall totals for south Wales, there is a small chance that 50-60 mm could fall here in 24 hours.

“There is higher confidence in the rainfall for north-west Wales, with between 70 and 100 mm of rain most likely.
“Given already saturated ground, in south Wales in particular, there is a small chance of further flooding during this event.”
The Met’s snow warning is in place for two areas of Scotland – one between Dumfries and Glasgow, and another area to the north of the country.

It’s in place from 6pm today until 11am Tuesday, and reads: “Frequent showers will turn increasingly wintry through Monday evening, allowing snow to settle on some higher routes.
“1-2 cm is likely above around 200 m, with 3-5 cm possible above 400 m.
“Showers will be accompanied by strong westerly winds which may lead to some drifting. Ice may also form on untreated surfaces.”
