Some of us have experienced thunder, lightning, wind and rain this morning, but now the Met Office has issued a yellow warning for more heavy rain this evening into tomorrow.

In Bude, the warning starts around 4pm this afternoon, into the early hours of the morning for persistent heavy rain. Similar weather will also affect Devon, Somerset and South Wales.

The Met Office warns of:

  • Possible power cuts and loss of other services to some homes and businesses
  • Homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings
  • Fast flowing or deep floodwater is possible
  • Delays or cancellations to train and bus services are possible
  • Spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures
  • Some communities may be cut off by flooded roads

There are currently no flood warnings in place for Bude, however.
