YELLOW ALERT FOR THUNDERSTORMS ISSUED FOR SUNDAY AFTERNOON

Local News

The skies above Salford are set to light up once more as the UK Met Office has issued another Yellow Alert for heavy rains as well as thunder and lightning. There is a possibility of localised flooding, especially on Churchill where it tends to flood every time the rain falls. If you are driving in and around the area, please reduce your speed as driving conditions could become hazardous very quickly.

The Met Office warned,

Quote

 

"While many areas will miss the worst of these storms, torrential downpours are likely in some places

"Where downpours occur, close to 30mm rain is possible in a relatively short space of time and 30 to 50mm rain could fall in a couple of hours.

"In a few places thunderstorms may also be accompanied by frequent lightning, hail and gusty winds."

 

Today:

Dry to start the day for most, with some brightness through the morning. Scattered heavy and thundery showers will develop through the afternoon, with torrential downpours and hail in places. Feeling warm and rather humid. Maximum temperature 25 °C.

Tonight:

Heavy showers and thunderstorms will gradually fade through the evening. Drier for a time, before showery rain spreads eastwards through the early hours of Monday morning. Minimum temperature 15 °C.

Monday:

After a wet start for most, it will turn drier through the morning with sunny spells developing. Staying mostly dry and bright through the afternoon, with only isolated showers. Maximum temperature 22 °C.

      The Environment Agency put homes around parts of Worsley Brook on a flood alert after river levels rose rapidly at the Chestnut Road river gauge as a result of localised thunderstorms.
      The alert has now been removed due to receding water levels. River levels have now fallen below the flood risk threshold. However, a Flood Alert remains in force for the wider area, so flooding may still affect roads and low lying land.


      It was believed there was a possibility of flooding for properties close to Worsley Brook as further thunderstorms are forecast during the day and evening.
      The pathway between Cypress Road and Riding Fold Lane was left flooded and impassable as water levels rose ever higher.

      At one point the water levels were a few inches from breaching and flooding properties on the stretch behind Alder Forest Avenue, some gardens along the path of the river had flooded due to weaknesses in the walls allowing water to exit into them. 

      A representative from the Environment Agency was knocking on doors to warn local people of potential flooding and reassuring them that they were closely monitoring the situation.
      Incident response staff are closely monitoring weather forecasts and river levels and will issue (further) flood warnings if necessary.
      Stay aware in case further warnings are issued.

      An upodated Yellow warning of rain has been issued from 1300 until 2300 on Sat 27 May.
      Showers are expected to develop early Saturday afternoon over North Wales and the Midlands and then track north or north eastwards during the rest of the day into the evening.
      Whilst many will miss the worst of the showers some places could see 30 mm of rain in an hour or less along with frequent lightning and hail. There is also the potential for some locally strong winds in association with these.
      Motorists are advised there may be surface spray on roads so beware.
      Fresher but still sunny and warm weather will replace the thunderstorms by late afternoon / early evening.
      Highs of 23deg can be expected in the afternoon with lows of 14deg by evening.
      UV Index: 5
      Pollution Levels: Moderate
      Pollen Count: Low

      Bad weather has badly affected the local motorway and road network with traffic on some stretches coming to a stand still and others suffering upwards of 30 min delays.

      Broken down down vehicles on the M60 have caused problems in both directions as the weather front moves in from the North East bringing with it bitterly cold high winds and lashing rain.
      Manchester Fire Service are asking that people only contact 999 for emergencies as they are dealing with a high volume of calls.

      A tree has been brought down on the M60 around J3 and is blocking the lane on the anticlockwise route adding more to the problem.
      Our advice is if you do not need to travel this evening then stay indoors, we will be running updates on our live news ticker all evening.
