Roads were left badly flooded today after torrential downpours hit Walsall

Stormy weather – complete with fierce rain and thunderstorms – descended on the area as Met Office chiefs issued a weather warning.

The weather warning continues on Tuesday, with people warned about the harsh conditions continuing to hit the region. 

Chief meteorologist Frank Saunders, from the Met Office, said: “Thunderstorm warnings cover much of England and Wales, with parts of southern England and South Wales seeing the greatest likelihood of impacts.

The storms will not affect all areas, but where they happen there will be frequent lightning, gusty winds and intense, heavy downpours with 30 to 40mm of rain possible in less than an hour and, in a few unlucky spots, a small chance of 60mm falling in a short period. 

“With the continuing hot weather, large swathes of the UK continue to be at risk from thunderstorms, and potentially the impacts from heavy rain, into the early part of next week.”
