London has been hit with heavy rain and thunderstorms today and the tail end of hurricane Lorenzo is expected to arrive on Thursday.

A yellow weather warning has been issued by the Met Office as heavy rain and thunderstorms are to hit the UK from Thursday lasting the weekend until early next week.

There will be wide spread flooding with road closures with train and bus cancellations and delays, there could be power cuts to homes and businesses.

Chief meteorologist at the Met Office, Dan Suri said, “There has been considerable uncertainty over the potential track of Lorenzo after it passes The Azores. However, we are now increasingly confident the remnants of Lorenzo will move towards the UK, bringing a spell of wet and very windy weather to western parts on Thursday and Friday.

“At the moment the strongest winds are expected in western Ireland, with a risk of coastal gales developing in Northern Ireland and western Scotland on Thursday and Wales and south-west England on Friday.

“Ex-Lorenzo will also bring spells of heavy rain to north-western parts of the UK through Thursday and Friday, particularly in Northern Ireland, western Scotland, central England and Wales.

“Our advice is to pay close attention to the weather forecast over the next couple of days and to keep an eye out for any weather warnings that may be issued in your area.”
