More bad weather is set to return to Huddersfield this week.

Forecasters are predicting another band of heavy rain sweeping the area on Wednesday, with the risk of more flooding.

The Environment Agency warned the new rainfall brings a new risk of significant flooding across parts of the north of England and parts of Wales.

A spokesman said: “This could lead to flooding of whole communities and significant disruption to travel.”

Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens has slightly revised his forecast and now expects the rainfall over a 24-hour period on Wednesday and Thursday to be a little less than feared.

But is is still likely that some parts of the town could see up to 30mm or just over an inch of rain.

Mr Stevens said: “The rain should start later and end sooner and our rivers and run-off areas should cope with that.

“A block of cold air is still there but if that moves to the east we may see another band of low pressure coming in with more rain.

“We are also likely to see a ridge of high pressure from Russia and Scandinavia moving in later this week which will bring a lot colder air.

“We may have to wait a few more days but there is a chance snow may well develop next week”.
