Kent could be a rainbow hotspot according to Met Office

By Rachel Dixon

With autumn well and truly underway, Kent has experienced heavy downpours and gusty winds today.

But it's not all doom and gloom as weather experts say the county is experiencing prime rainbow conditions.

Mid Kent College in Medway Road, Gillingham, shared this beautiful rainbow diving into the River Medway.

Met Office meteorologist Steve Keates said: "There is some low pressure going across Kent so it has meant there are some quite heavy showers in areas.

"But the sunny spells mean that people will be able to see lots of rainbows across the county.

"There should also be a beautiful sunset today, it's perfect photography weather."

The short showers across the county has meant some residents in East Malling have seen 7.6mm in two hours.

Today has been the highest level of rainfall in Kent since the beginning of October.

Drivers and commuters should remember to be careful in the wet conditions.

Mr Keates added: "If you're doing your laundry watch out for Friday evening because that's when the next deluge of rain is expected. But don't worry it will be sunny by Saturday morning!"
