The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning after forecasters predicted torrential downpours and thunderstorms would lash the country today. The warning affects a vast area of southern and southeast England, causing travel inconvenience and floods in certain areas.
“Slow-moving, heavy showers, with some thunderstorms, are likely to continue to break out today,” according to a Met Office weather warning issued on Monday.
“This might result in heavy downpours in certain areas, with 20 to 30 mm of rain in an hour and possibly more than 60 mm in two or three hours.
“In the afternoon or evening, there is also a potential of more continuous heavy rain developing across portions of southeast England.”
“Mostly dry with sunny spells,” according to the Met Office’s forecast for the week.
“In the northwest, cloudier at times with light rain,
“On the eastern shores, generally light winds and warming temperatures, but fresher winds and colder temperatures at times.”
Tuesday’s weather is expected to be better than Monday’s, according to the Met Office.
As the torrential downpours go away, the weather stated Tuesday is looking brighter and drier all around.
Sunny intervals are expected with the possibility of light showers in the late morning, according to the forecast.
