Rain over St Marks

A weather warning has been issued for heavy rain in Preston during Saturday.


Prestonians are warned that thunder storms are on the way for the duration of the day and evening.

The Met Office issued the warning today for the wet weather which is likely to affect those doing the St Catherine’s Hospice moonlight walk.

A statement from the Met office states: “Warm, humid air is likely to be pulled northwards from France late on Friday and during Saturday. Within this air mass, there is an increasing likelihood that heavy, thundery showers will break out.

“It is likely that many places within the current broad warning area will miss the worst of the storms; over the next few days it may be possible to focus on the areas most at risk.”
