Met Office issues yellow thunderstorm warnings

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warnings for thunderstorms as a plume of warm air will raise temperatures and increase the risk of thundery showers across Watford on Saturday, June 10, 2023.

The warning is in effect from 2pm until 9pm on Saturday, and 12pm until 9pm on Sunday. 

A second Yellow warning for thunderstorms has been issued for Sunday between 1200 and 2100, covering a large area of the UK including parts of Wales, England, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

Frank added: “The heat will last for a few more days at least, Sunday will see 30°C again in parts of southern UK and the risk of thunderstorms also spreads more widely across the UK – particularly western and central areas – with heavy downpours again brining the risk of thunder, hail and gusty winds. As well as higher daytime temperatures, overnight temperatures will also climb with some locations not getting below the mid-teens °C overnight.”

A spokesperson from the Met Office said: “High temperatures on Sunday will trigger a scattering of showers across the warning area, some of which are likely to be torrential and thundery, perhaps bringing a few places 30-40 mm in an hour.”

Adding: “As well as rain, additional hazards will be hail, strong gusts of wind, and lightning will be additional hazards.
