A WEATHER warning for rain and thunderstorms has been issued with Worcestershire experiencing yet more bad weather.

According to the met office, the county can expect rain and thunder throughout the next 24 hours.

The full warning said: "Heavy showers and thunderstorms could bring some disruption, especially to transport.

"There is a good chance driving conditions will be affected by spray, standing water or hail, leading to longer journey times by car and bus.

"Delays to train services are possible, perhaps damage to a few buildings and structures from lightning strikes

"Some short term loss of power is possible."

Earlier this week, Storm Francis hit Worcestershire, bringing down trees and blocking roads across the county.

Roads including the Tything in Worcester were partially blocked as a result of the fallen trees, with similar incidents in Cutnall Green, Upton, Pershore and Fish Hill, near Broadway.

Heavy rain is forecast up to the early hours of Friday morning, with more poor weather and possible thunderstorms also forecast for the day itself.

The weekend, however, appears to have a much better forecast, with Saturday expected to be mostly clear before similar conditions on Sunday.
