What is a yellow warning ?

Yellow means that there is a low chance of seeing the severe weather, but if you do it could be severe.

You should plan ahead thinking about possible travel delays, or the disruption of your day to day activities.

The Met Office monitors the developing weather situation and Yellow means keep an eye on the latest forecast and be aware that the weather may change or worsen, leading to disruption of your plans in the next few days.

What do the Met Office say ?

A forecaster says: “Two waves of thunderstorms are expected to affect the UK on Thursday.

“The first wave is expected to develop over southern England early on Thursday and push northwards across parts of the Midlands and East Anglia, clearing later in the morning or during the afternoon.

“The second wave is expected to develop further north, most likely over parts of northern England and the Midlands during the afternoon before moving eastwards and clearing during the evening or early hours of Friday.

“20 to 30 mm of rain may fall within an hour and perhaps 50 to 80 mm in 2 or 3 hours, these totals most likely associated with the second wave of storms.

“However, such totals are likely to be very localised with many places staying dry”.
