The Met Office has issued a weather warning for heavy rain and strong winds across Herefordshire, with further flooding inevitable.

The Met Office warning for heavy rain for Herefordshire says:

“Following recent wet weather, further spells of rain, heavy in places are expected on Monday evening and overnight. Then after a brief gap, another spell of heavy rain is likely to spread northeastwards on Tuesday. 

“The focus this evening and overnight will be across parts of southwest and southern England, south Wales and perhaps the Midlands.

“On Tuesday the focus for the heaviest rain is less clear-cut but perhaps more likely across parts of Wales, the Midlands towards eastern England and Yorkshire. 

“Over the warning period, 15 to 30 mm rain is likely to fall fairly widely, with a few places seeing 35 to 50 mm. 

“The worst of the rain should clear southwestern areas of England and south Wales by around the middle of Tuesday but could last into the evening across the northeast of the warning area.

“Strong winds will affect parts of the area, with a separate wind warning in place.”

The weather warning for strong winds for Herefordshire says:

“Very windy conditions are likely to quickly develop over southwest England and southern Wales on Tuesday morning and then spread eastwards across southern and some central parts of England. 

“In coastal areas winds are likely to gust towards 60 mph at times, with a lower likelihood of 70 mph gusts.

“Inland gusts of 40 to 50 mph are likely but with a smaller chance of 55 to 60 mph gusts, although the extent of such gusts carries low confidence at present. 

“This windy weather will be accompanied by heavy rain in places, covered by a separate warning. Winds will start to ease from the west during the afternoon and evening.”
