TWO fresh weather warnings have been issued across Bradford for thunderstorms, meaning the district could be braced for storms from Monday to Thursday.

Yellow warnings for thunderstorms today and tomorrow were issued covering the district last week, and now the Met Office has warned of more stormy weather on Wednesday and Thursday too.

The district has been put on alert due to the risk of heavy rain, lightning, flash flooding and power outages which could potentially hit the area.

All the warnings cover the entirety of England and Wales, with some also covering Scotland and Northern Ireland. The Met Office said this is due to the “significant uncertainty in location and timing” of when the storms may hit.

It said: “Areas of thunderstorms were increasingly likely to develop over the south of the UK or nearby continent at the weekend or early this week, and will generally track north or north-westwards, potentially affecting all parts of the UK at some points during this period.

“The most intense thunderstorms, in some instances associated with large hail, will most probably be those triggered by the high temperatures of the day over England and Wales. These could occur at any time of the day.

“Where the storms occur, rainfall totals of 30 to 40 millimetres could fall in an hour, with some locations potentially receiving 60 to 80mm in three hours, although these will be fairly isolated.”
