Met Office issues thunderstorm warning for Thursday

Met Office thunderstorm weather warning will come into force at 10am on Thursday and run until midnight.

The forecasters have issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms across the region tomorrow (Friday, 23rd June).

A Met Office spokesman said: “Thunderstorms are likely to break out in some areas, particularly during the afternoon and early evening.

“While most places will probably miss them, where thunderstorms do occur there is a chance that in a few places up to 40 mm of rain could fall in an hour or so and 40 to 60 mm could fall in two or three hours.

“These torrential downpours may be accompanied by frequent lightning, whilst gusty winds and hail may also affect a few places.

“The exact location of the thunderstorms will be hard to pinpoint, so the warning area will be kept under review and updated if necessary.”

Met Office thunderstorms warning

Although Wednesday and part of Thursday are expected to remain sunny and hot, there’s now an ever-growing chance of heavy rain showers and thunderstorms on Friday.

Met Office Deputy Meteorologist Helen Caughey said: “There is a risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms in the Glastonbury area on both Friday and Saturday, although these should be quick moving, some surface water might accumulate at times. Temperatures will start to dip as we go through the end of the week returning to near normal for the time of year, with highs likely around 18-20C.

“Sunday is expected to be mostly dry and bright at first but with showers once again developing through the morning, some of which could be heavy, and possibly thundery. The unsettled pattern is expected to continue to dominate into the start of next week.”
