MANY people in Herefordshire will be making Bank Holiday plans this weekend - and as with most things, a lot of it will be dependant on the weather. 

According to the Met Office, rain will continue tomorrow (Friday) before it becomes more settled over the weekend. There could also be spells of sunshine on Bank Holiday Monday, but it will be wise to keep an umbrella close by as there will still be a threat of rain.

The Met Office currently has a yellow warning for thunderstorms, which are in place until midnight tonight (Thursday). 


Forecasters at the Met Office said that, while some areas will remain dry, thunderstorms are likely to develop this afternoon and evening from the east and move relatively slowly westwards or northwestwards.

Heavy rain accompanied by frequent lightning is likely where thunderstorms occur, with up to 25 to 30 millimetres of rain possibly in one or two hours in a few places, while as much as 50 millimetres could fall in some spots.

There may also be hail in some places, the Met Office said. 

West Midlands weather forecast
