Thunderstorms possible as Met Office issues yellow weather warning

Evesham Editorial 2nd Aug, 2023   0

HEAVY showers and thunderstorms are expected across Worcestershire today (Wednesday) with flooding and travel disruption.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning as a result of the forecast for the county.

There is a good chance driving conditions will be affected by spray, standing water and/or hail, leading to longer journey times by car and bus, according to the warning.

Hopes of summer weather have been raised with ‘drier and blighter’ interludes increasingly likely by the end of next week.

“During the second half of August, there is a greater chance of more settled spells developing, with warmer and drier conditions becoming slightly more likely than the unseasonably unsettled weather of July,” the Met Office said.

“However, unsettled conditions are never too far away and so there will likely still be some spells of rain or showers for many areas from time to time.

“Temperatures look like they will recover to at least average, or a little above, however any prolonged dry or hot spells appear to be unlikely.”
