Weather warning for thunder and heavy rain

Postado Julho 17, 2017

The Met Office has today issued a yellow weather warning for intense rain and scattered thunderstorms across our county this week.

The heavy showers are expected to push north across the South West on Tuesday evening.

Rain is expected to move north across southern parts of the United Kingdom throughout Tuesday evening and although many places won't see these showers, there is a chance of localised flooding of homes, businesses and susceptible roads.

A Met Office spokesman said: "Although many places won't see these showers, there is a chance of localised flooding of homes, businesses and susceptible roads".

"Frequent lightning may be an additional hazard with potential for disruption to power networks".

Some places will miss the intense downpours, but when they do hit they could cause 20 to 30mm of rain in an hour.

"This may result in surface water flooding, particularly should these amounts fall across urban areas".
