Met Office thunderstorm warning: Alerts issued as lightning storms batter UK – new charts

“Some places will miss them, but where they do occur they will bring torrential downpours with 25 to 35 mm rain falling in an hour and perhaps 40 to 50 mm in 2 to 3 hours in one or two places.

“Lightning and hail will be additional hazards. These showers and thunderstorms will only slowly die out through the evening, but may persist across northwest England, southwest Scotland and perhaps eastern Northern Ireland into the early hours of Wednesday morning.”

Both warnings last until tomorrow, when they are joined by another two thunderstorm advisories. 

On June 17, they creep inwards towards the east, skirting around London and towards Norwich.
