Heavy rainfall and possible hail set to hit the region until tomorrow (Wed) morning.

NORTH Devon is under a yellow weather warning today (Tues) and tomorrow as heavy rainfall hits the region.

The warning issued by the Met Office is in place until 6am on Wednesday.

A further warning has been issued this afternoon with heavy rainfall predicted from midday on Wednesday until 9am on Thursday.

Heavy showers combined with hail and thunder is set to pummel the region, with a risk of localised flooding.

A chief forecaster for the Met Office said: “Further bands of showers running into southern counties have the potential to produce intense bursts of rain, these quickly leading to localised impacts given the very saturated ground.

“Hail will be an additional hazard associated with some of the heaviest showers.

“It won’t be raining all the time, with some drier interludes likely but on the other hand, longer spells of rain may occur, more particularly in the southeast overnight into Tuesday and again, perhaps more widely, overnight into Wednesday.

“15mm to 25 mm may fall in around six hours at any time through this period, with overall 36-hour totals perhaps exceeding 40 mm at a few localities.”
