THUNDERSTORMS could bring disruption to parts of Herefordshire, the Met Office is warning.

A yellow weather warning has been issued for parts of Herefordshire, to be in place from 7am to 6pm today (Sunday, September 17), but the Met Office says more severe warnings are possible.

At the time of writing, Hereford, Kington, Ross-on-Wye and surrounding areas are covered by the warning, while parts of the county like Ledbury, Bromyard and Leominster are not thought to be at as much risk.

We can expect heavy showers, hail and lightning strikes, which will most likely arrive later in the day.

Deputy chief meteorologist Rebekah Sherwin said: “Downpours could lead to transport disruption. There is also the risk of strong winds in places. It is likely that severe weather warnings will be issued.”


Flooding and strong winds could also be in store for some people’s homes, with possible damage to buildings from deep floodwater, lightning strikes, hail and strong winds, or even some communities becoming cut off.

Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services. Spray and flooding could also lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

There is a chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost.
