A yellow weather warning has been issued for parts of Wiltshire with heavy rain forecast later this week.

This is just days after an alert was put in place for the county as Storm Debi swept across the region.

Wiltshire has been hit by several bouts of adverse weather in recent months on top of this with Storm Babet and Storm Ciarán causing widespread flooding.

Now heavy downpours are set to return to return, with a yelow weather warning for rain issued from midnight on Thursday morning until 6pm on Thursday evening.

Marlborough, Calne, Corsham, Devizes, Trowbridge and Westbury are all set to be hit by the rainfall.

Swindon falls just outside the warning zone, but according to the Met Office forecast, is set to be hit by heavy rain too.

A Met Office spokesperson said: “A spell of rain, heavy at times, will move east across southern parts of England and the south of Wales during Thursday.

“10-20 mm of rain falling widely with 30-40 mm possible near the south coast of England and over east facing hills.

“Strong winds, gusting 50 mph near coasts, will accompany the rain, with a small chance of gusts reaching 60 mph for the Isles of Scilly and west of Cornwall.”
