WEEKEND plans across Herefordshire could be scuppered, with a Met Office weather warning issued for the county.

The yellow weather warning for rain is set to come into force at 3pm on Saturday (February 17) and will remain in force until 6pm on Sunday (February 18).

Much of Herefordshire is already saturated from previous heavy rain, with several flooding events in the county already this year.

Weather warning

The Met Office said an area of persistent and occasionally heavy rain is expected to move from west to east across the warning area during Saturday and Sunday, falling on already saturated ground.

The rain will clear western areas early on Sunday, the Met Office said, with all areas becoming dry by the evening.

The warning area covers the entirety of England and Wales. 


Weather forecast

Met Office forecasters said today (Friday) will be a brighter and mild day to end the week, but still fairly cloudy at times with the chance of an isolated light shower.

Tonight will be mainly dry and mild overnight with some clear spells before turning cloudy with murky conditions developing over higher ground.

Saturday is forecast to be largely cloudy, with some sunny intervals possible, before turning breezier with heavy rain by the evening.
