Close to a month's worth of rain fell over the Maidenhead area in the first week of January, according to a weather expert.
Meteorologist Roger Brugge, who lives in Maidenhead, said about 90 per cent of the rain usually expected for January fell between the start of the year and Tuesday.
The country has been hit by about three weeks of steady rain, but Roger said a three-week dry spell preceeding it has meant flooding has only recently begun to take its toll.
"There is respite ahead," he said.
"You still will get spells of rain as you would expect in winter, but it's not going to be as stormy."
