Bonfire Night weather forecast: Rain is set to hit the West Midlands hard tonight from Guy Fawkes

It should be a wet bonfire night

A band of rain is expected to sweep across the West Midlands and Wales throughout Saturday, starting early in the morning and bringing flurries of rain throughout the morning and into the early afternoon.

Bridgnorth, Wolverhampton and Market Drayton are expected to be among the rainiest areas in the morning, the Met Office predicted – Wolverhampton will be under a cloud of rain for most of the day.

Shrewsbury Parkrunners could stay dry but cold, while Telford runners are advised to tread carefully with heavier rain expected at 9am.

Most of Shropshire and the Black Country will then expect infrequent rain throughout the day, although a thin dry band covering Shrewsbury and Telford could mean central Shropshire is spared.

Temperatures are expected to hit double digits around midday, with highs of 13 in Shrewsbury in the early afternoon, settling at 11 or 12 across much of the West Midlands.

At 5pm, when thoughts turn to evening events, steady rain is expected – hitting particularly hard first in south Shropshire, then in Shrewsbury, Telford and Stafford around 7pm.

Most of the West Midlands should be spared further showers at 9pm, but a band of heavy rain is expected to sweep northeast across Alveley, Wombourne, Wolverhampton then Lichfield.

The rain should have stopped around 10:30 p.m.

A band of rain, heavy in places, moving eastward over most areas. Becoming brighter in the west in the afternoon with a few showers. Windy for many.
