Thunderstorms are expected in the next 24 hours

The Met Office has warned that significant thunderstorms are expected to hit parts of the UK after what has been the hottest weekend of the year so far.

A yellow weather warning went into effect at 8pm on Sunday and lasted until 5am today.

Flash floods could wreak havoc even in southern England before a mini-heatwave hits across the country thanks to a heat plume heading our way from North Africa.

Forecasters are predicting mercury could rise to 26C by mid-week, but first Brits should brace for a cloudy, wet and gloomy 24-hour period.






Parts of England have been hit by a yellow severe weather warning

A Met Office statement said: “While locations affected by thunderstorms are uncertain, some locations are likely to experience a combination of heavy rain, frequent lightning and hail on Sunday night.

“There is a small chance that homes and businesses will be flooded quickly and some buildings will be damaged by flooding, lightning strikes or hail.

“Should thunderstorms develop, they are likely to move north from the south coast into parts of south Wales, southern England and East Anglia on Sunday evening, before gradually weakening on Monday morning.

“While some locations remain dry, some locations could experience 20 to 30mm of rain in under an hour, with frequent lightning and hail added hazards.”
