‘Take extra care’, drivers warned with heavy rain and wind expected
MET Office chiefs have warned that heavy rain and high winds could cause disruption this evening and overnight.
Herts Fire Control has urged drivers to take extra care on the roads.
A statement from the Met Office said: “A spell of very wet and very windy weather is expected to move west to east across many parts of the UK during Thursday.
“Coming so soon after the heavy rain which fell in places earlier in the week this is likely to provoke further issues with flooding.
“Additionally, winds will gust to 50 to 60mph in places, and could exceed 70mph in some exposed western areas.
“In view of the wind and rain combination, the public should be prepared for some transport disruption.”
