Met Office Warnings Issued For: Cheshire West and Chester

  1. Yellow warning of rain

    1230 on Tue 6 October
    2359 on Tue 6 October
    Updated 6 October at 10:20 Active


    Although many areas will miss the heaviest rainfall today, some parts of the warning area are likely to see heavy, sometimes thundery and slow-moving showers, these leading to temporary surface water flooding in a few areas, together with minor disruption to travel.

  2. Yellow warning of rain

    0000 on Wed 7 October
    1600 on Wed 7 October
    Updated 6 October at 10:38


    Further slow-moving bands of heavy rain are likely to continue into Wednesday; again it will be a minority of places which see the larger totals, but where it occurs, there is the risk of localised minor flooding.

    The public should be aware of the risk of minor disruption to travel due to localised surface water flooding.
