Met Office issues 'thunder risk' warning as flood alerts in placePA
“Some within the warning area could see torrential rain, perhaps even reaching 40mm of rainfall within the hour,” Chief Forecaster Steve Willington said.
“Later in the warning period there is a risk of large hail, frequent lightning and gusty winds.”
Speaking on the longer-term outlook. Deputy Chief Meteorologist David Oliver said: “During the rest of today (Sunday) and tomorrow we will see a transition to fresher conditions, with the warmth and humidity of recent days being pushed eastwards away from the UK.
“This will allow fresher and, at times, unsettled conditions driven by what is happening in the Atlantic.”
