Mixed forecast for England following washout
Saturday 01 August 2009
England appear to be running out of time if they are hoping to beat the weather as well as Australia in the rain-reduced third npower Test at Edgbaston.
Following today's washout, England have only two days in which to turn a promising position into the victory they need to go 2-0 up with two matches to play - and the advice from the weather experts is not especially encouraging.
The good news from MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, is that the heaviest rain has gone for good until after the end of the match - and tomorrow at least is set to be dry.
"The worst of the bad weather has gone," said a spokesman.
"Tomorrow they should get a full day. But on Monday, there could be a few showers."
If the match progresses significantly in the meantime, however, it appears unlikely the final day will be a write-off.
"It will be pretty overcast on Monday, with showers spreading in from the west," the spokesman added.
"Birmingham could have a few spots of rain or drizzle."
