After plenty of sunshine and hot weather the Met Office are warning the region of heavy rain and storms across the region.

Merseyside has been placed on a yellow severe weather warning for heavy rain from 3am Wednesday to 6am on Thursday.

Although the forecast storms it will still feel hot and humid on Merseyside despite the threat of cloud and rain.

The Met Office warn that heavy downpours could lead to localised flooding.


Will we see storms ?

It will depend on where in Merseyside you are, as storms can often be hit or miss.

As the weather has been hot and humid where ever does see thunder and lightning could get quite a show.

Merseyside’s greatest chance of seeing thunderstorms is expected to be during Wednesday night.

Fresher air will sweep in as the band of rain moves in, meaning temperatures will have dropped by 10C on Thursday to 17C.

During this time a band of heavy rain will track from the west which could bring with it some spectacular lightning shows, rumbles of thunder and torrential downpours.
The Met Office have warned: “Rain over northern England early on Wednesday may locally lead to 20 mm or 30 mm of rain falling in one or two hours.

“Thunderstorms developing from late Wednesday afternoon bring a greater threat of severe weather with associated torrential downpours giving as much as 30 mm or even possibly 40 mm in an hour in places.

“Note that areas of severe weather are not expected to occur at the same time across the whole warning area.

“Instead, the threat of heavy rain and thunder is initially confined to parts of northern England before the threat of severe weather becomes more extensive late Wednesday”.
