The Met Office has issued yellow warnings for lightening storms with a slow moving system forecast for torrential to hit parts of the UK from Friday.

The Met Office warns, “Heavy showers are expected across much of the UK on Friday.

“Within the warning area these showers and thunderstorms will be slow moving and may cause localised surface water impacts.

“Rainfall totals will vary considerably and not all locations will be affected by the heaviest showers.

“However, where the showers do occur there is potential for 20-30mm of rain in a short space of time and during the course of the day there is a chance that some places could see as much as 80-100mm build up.

Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna told the Mirror, “Is the next named storm coming? There is potential for it, with a deep area of low pressure which could turn wet and windy again around Thursday.

“Forecast models show a continuation of our cool and changeable pattern for 10 to 14 days, but there are optimistic signals for warmer high pressure following.”

Petagna added, “Today and tomorrow, there will be a mixture of sunshine and showers for most across the UK.

“The weather will be more unsettled from Wednesday onwards.

“There’s showers or longer spells of rain for most areas as we go from Wednesday into Thursday and potentially Friday as well.”
