THUNDER, lightning and even hail has hit Herefordshire this afternoon (Tuesday) as the temperamental weather continues.

Hereford was hit by a deluge of heavy rain, followed by loud rumblings of thunder and flashes of lightning, at around 12.40pm.

Anyone caught out were soon seeking cover as the rain continued to fall.

Thankfully, the stormy weather only lasted in the city for about 30 minutes with skies brightening up by 1.10pm. However, it soon hit the north of the county, with hail battering Bromyard, resulting in a car alarm being set off in Bromyard. 


Hail also hit the south of the county, with Colin Headland capturing the temperamental weather in Wormelow. 

The brief respite didn't last long though, with further heavy rain falling at just after 2pm. More is expected throughout the afternoon.

The Met Office does have a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms in place, but it does not include Herefordshire.

The warning, which stretches from CornWall to Lincolnshire, and all of the south east, is in place until 10pm tonight. 

The Met Office says there is a good chance that driving conditions will be affected by spray, standing water and/or hail, while flooding to a few homes or businesses is possible.
