Uttlesford residents should prepare for yet more rain today (Friday) as more showers are on their way.

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for Essex as heavy, possibly thundery, showers are set to hit the county between midday and 8pm.

The chief forecaster said: “There are already some areas of rain and showers across southern areas, but as temperatures increase this morning, these are likely to become heavy in places, with localised downpours possible.

“Furthermore, as on recent days, the showers may well organise themselves into slow-moving bands of heavy rain, which may produce 20 to 30 mm of rain over 2 or 3 hours.”
