Met Office issues yellow weather warning for thunderstorms

The country is basking in a scorching heatwave this weekend.

Parts of the South East of England are enjoying highs of 36C, and it is also just as hot in other parts of the UK too.

But the Met Office has warned that the warm weather is not here to stay.

The national weather service has issued a yellow thunderstorm weather warning for next week.

It confirmed the news on Twitter this afternoon, in a post that reads: “Yellow Warning issued. As well as on Monday and Tuesday, thunderstorms are also possible on Wednesday Details are uncertain, but where thunderstorms develop they could be torrential.”

On its website, the weather service has said that some places are likely to see severe thunderstorms next week.

But it has said there is ‘significant uncertainty’ in location and timings.

The Met Office has issued some information on what to expect on Monday:

What to expect

  • There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes and large hail.
  • Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to public transport.
  • Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and increased chance of accidents.
  • There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost
  • There is a small chance of fast flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life
