More thunderstorms are on the way for Huddersfield.

But many people could again be left wondering what all the fuss was about.

Some parts of West Yorkshire were hit by up to an inch of rain in less than an hour on Tuesday afternoon as the hot weather broke in spectacular style.

But Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens said other areas escaped the stunning storms, which included thunder and lightning strikes.

One bolt of lightning struck railway equipment at Marsden and disrupted train services for several hours, causing hold-ups for thousands of passengers.

And in areas around Barkisland and Ripponden, there was almost an inch of rain in a torrential downpour.

The storms didn’t get rid of the heat: the temperatures in Huddersfield on Tuesday night were the warmest so far this year, at 14°C, and followed the warmest day of the year so far when the mercury hit 25.8°C.

Met Office graphs showed the storms centred over much of Huddersfield and the Otley area of West Yorkshire.

Mr Stevens, who logged just 1mm of rain at Salendine Nook , said: “We had warned of thunderstorms and for many people they were spectacular, with many lightning strikes.

“It was classed as a severe thunderstorm which is graded by the number of lightning strikes.

“But people in other parts of the town were out in their gardens enjoying the heat and saw no rain at all.

“Certainly the storm hit places like Scapegoat Hill, Outlane and Barkisland, but in Linthwaite there was nothing.

“It was a severe storm for 10 or 15 minutes but then passed over.

““Today is very much a repeat. It was warm and humid from the start but the clouds are likely to bubble up during the day and we could well see more thunderstorms by late afternoon and into the evening. Again they will be hit and miss so some will not see any rain at all.

“As we head towards the end of the week we say goodbye to the plume of warm air from the Continent and see cooler, cloudier weather coming in. It means temperatures at or below average and the chance of a few showers, with sunny spells.

“That’s the picture into the weekend and early next week and I don’t think we will see another plume of hot air until past the middle of the month.”
