Heavy rain, thunderstorms and hail possible in Lincoln on Wednesday

Hot weather to come to abrupt end with an inch of rain in an hour

Hot weather to come to abrupt end with an inch of rain in an hour

The Met Office is warning people to be prepared for thundery showers on Tuesday and Wednesday, and has issued a yellow weather alert.

A Met Office spokesman said there was a "chance of localised flooding of homes, businesses and susceptible roads".

The yellow Met Office warning states showers are expected to push north across southern parts of the United Kingdom on Tuesday evening, perhaps turning more widespread towards midnight.

"Frequent lightning may be an additional hazard with potential disruption to power networks".

The Chief Forecaster's assessment is: "South-west England looks like it will be first to see scattered thunderstorms, the threat then expanding north-eastwards through the course of the evening".

Some places will miss the intense downpours, but when they do hit they could cause 20 to 30mm of rain in an hour.

This could lead to surface water flooding, particularly across urban areas.
