Met Office issues severe weather warning for Herts

We’re over halfway through October now so that means the weather is going to quickly turn cold, wet and potentially icy.

A few weeks ago at the start of the month, Hertfordshire was hit by Storm Alex that caused a huge amount of flooding in areas like Hemel Hempstead, Watford and Waltham Cross.

Unfortunately we could be seeing more heavy rain coming in tomorrow (Wednesday, October 21) after the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for rain.

The warning is in place for most of the south of England, including the whole of Hertfordshire, and comes into force from 3am until 2pm.

It’s likely that the heavy rain will cause some disruption to travel as well. The Met Office have warned people to expect:

  • Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer
  • Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer
  • Flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible.

No other weather warnings have been put in place for the rest of the week yet for Hertfordshire.

However it is expected to rain for most of the rest of the week and until the weekend.

Motorists should ensure they take care when out driving on the roads and people are encouraged to look at travel services information online in case of disruption.
