Met Office issues yellow warning for thunderstorms, heavy rain and flooding this weekend

The Met Office has warned that the UK could see flooding as heavy rain and thunderstorms are set to hit this weekend.

Forecasters have said that some areas could see 30-40mm in a couple of hours and other places could see 20mm or less in an hour.

Most of England has yellow warnings in place for thunderstorms which could effect much of the southeast and southwestern parts of the country.

Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin said, “This weekend promises some pretty wet conditions. It won’t rain all weekend, but when it is raining, that rain could be heavy.”

He added, “You could see those temperatures jumping up perhaps into the mid-20s, but that’s the exception rather than the rule.”

Forecaster Steven Keates told the Sun, “This summer is not going to be remembered for warmth.

“It’s been very bland.

“We’ve had flooding, some parts of the country have seen double their average rainfall and temperatures have been unremarkable.

“It’s been wishy-washy to say the least and that’s how it’s going to end.”

Next week there will be better weather with temperatures reaching 27C in some areas from Monday.
