The Met Office is anticipating thunderstorms in the south-west, including Bude, tomorrow. All in all, it looks a most unpleasant day. Let’s hope it does not impact Bude at War.

The warning lasts from 7am to 6pm.

The Met Office says:

Heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected to move northwards during Sunday. Some torrential downpours are possible, with a chance of 50-70 mm of rainfall accumulating in a few places, potentially in a few hours, although many areas will miss the worst. Lightning, hail and gusty winds are also possible hazards.

  • There is a small chance of fast flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life
  • Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services
  • Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures
  • There is a small chance that some communities become cut off by flooded roads
  • There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost
