Following last week’s announcement of warm air in southern England,

the Met Office has issued two weather warnings for thunderstorms expected later today.

The yellow weather warnings encompass London, large portions of the south, southwest, and southeast of England, as well as Cardiff and southern Wales.

The initial warning anticipates heavy rain and potential thunderstorms, covering Wales and extensive regions of southwest England from 8pm tonight until 8am tomorrow.

The second warning, which takes effect from 11pm tonight until 6am tomorrow, indicates likely thunderstorms later this evening and overnight in London, Brighton, Oxford, Dorset and surrounding areas.

In both warned areas, the Met Office cautions of a risk of sudden flooding and lightning strikes, alongside a possibility of hail and strong winds.

Travel disruptions, including delays and cancellations to rail and bus services, could occur due to flooding and lightning strikes, as highlighted by the Met Office. They advise travellers to monitor road conditions if driving.

The forecast suggests spells of heavy downpours throughout the evening and overnight, with an expected rainfall of 2cm to 4cm, and in some regions, up to 5cm. The forecaster notes that a significant portion of this rainfall may transpire within a 2 or 3-hour timeframe.
