Thunderstorms are expected to return to Herefordshire with a risk of more flooding following a weekend of heavy rain, forecasters have warned.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms across the county as well as much of the South West and Wales for Tuesday, with the risk of floods, lightning strikes, hail and strong winds. There is also a slight chance of power cuts.

The storms are expected to be heaviest over Hereford between 1pm and 4pm.

The county was hit by spectacular lightning storms just last week.

Forecasters said that while the ongoing band of heavy rain will clear on Monday, a second band of low pressure will hit the country on Tuesday.

Met Office meteorologist Mark Wilson said some areas will see heavy downpours and could get between 30mm and 40mm of rain.

"Thunderstorms are a concern - there could be as much as 30mm to 40mm of rain. That's quite a lot of rain flowing in quite a short period of time."

The Met Office also warned there could be delays and cancellations to trains and buses as well as difficult driving conditions and road closures due to the storms.

The new warning follows a weekend of heavy downpours with half a month's worth of rain falling across parts of the UK leading to travel disruption and floods.

A yellow weather warning for rain was in place across parts of the Midlands, the North West of England, Northern Ireland and south-west Scotland on Sunday.

The Environment Agency had issued 30 flood warnings on Sunday evening, though there are none for Herefordshire at present.

The wet weather comes after a week in which Britain was hit by hot temperatures and thunderstorms, with the heatwave causing problems for train and air passengers.
