Warnings issued as UK prepares for ‘thundery downpours’


Parts of the UK could be at risk of more localised flooding after warnings of ‘thundery downpours’ over the next two days.

The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings of rain for large parts of the south east coast, the East Midlands, East Anglia and London.

40mm of rain is expected to fall in four hours in some areas – with concerns of disruption to roads.

It comes just three weeks since heavy rainfall caused flash flooding across the south – with several people having to be rescued from their homes in Cornwall.

What is a yellow weather warning?

A yellow weather warning is issued when severe weather is expected over the coming days.

The Met Office warns people to plan ahead in these scenarios as the result of the weather could disrupt travel or activities.
