Met Office weather warning: 'Intense' rain and lightning to batter Britain – latest alerts

0


Met Office weather forecasters have levelled another warning for thunderstorms over the UK today, as the country experiences its third successive day of heavy rain. While yesterday and Wednesday’s warnings coated the Midlands and southeast, on Friday the threat arises in Scotland. 

The Met Office has warned thunderstorms will touch down on the west coast of Scotland around Glasgow. 

The warning reads: “Heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop late this afternoon and through the early evening, moving slowly northwest, before slowly fading overnight.

“The most intense rainfall is likely across parts of central Scotland during the early evening, and then across northwest Scotland.

“Whilst not all areas will see the heaviest rain, some places may see 30 to 40 mm in 1 to 2 hours which may lead to localised flooding. Lightning and hail are also likely.”
