Hour-by-hour forecast as thunderstorms set to hit Stoke-on-Trent



Many may have been relieved to see the thunder weather warning being lifted for North Staffordshire – but it appears there are still some storms heading our way this afternoon.

The Met Office had put the thunderstorm weather warning in place for Tuesday and Wednesday as the area was grouped in with a number of places around the Midlands.

Such a warning is put in place when the conditions are expected to cause ‘some low level impacts’ – which can include some travel disruption.

While no such warning is in place around North Staffordshire today, the Met Office is predicting some thundery weather for Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle, and the Moorlands.

Here are the hourly forecasts for those areas:

Stoke-on-Trent

At noon rain is predicted for the area and it is said to remain that way until around 8pm tonight.

When it comes to thunder we are set for a dose at around 2pm before such conditions return at 5pm and 6pm.

Temperature wise and residents in the city can expect a high of around 17C. Despite a rather grim outlook, forecasters say it will be dry by 9pm and clear.

Moorlands

Forecasters say the Moorlands will be experiencing more thunder than Stoke-on-Trent. Here such conditions will start at noon when it will coincide with rain.

The thunder will continue from 2pm through 3pm before a brief break at 4pm. But brief it will be, with such conditions set to return at 5pm. Rain-wise and it will be relatively constant from noon until around 8pm when it eases off before giving way to a dry night.
