Having been a 5/1 shot yesterday, the bookies now make it just 3/1 for this month to play host to the wettest March on record, with ‘cyclone conditions’ set to hit Britain.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Things are looking much worse on the weather front, with record-breaking March rain an increasing possibility.”
