warm weather to be replaced by thunder, large hail; yellow warning issued
Brits in eastern England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland have been warned to prepare for thunderstorms today. The Met Office has warned of large hail measuring up to 3cm in diameter, lightning, and blustery winds that are likely to disrupt the warm and muggy weather. Some locations may even see up to 30-40mm of rain in a single hour.

The yellow warning for thunderstorms is in place from 1pm to 9pm in England and Scotland, covering areas such as the East Midlands, Yorkshire and North East, including Nottingham, Hull, and Newcastle. In Scotland, Dumfries, Galloway, Lothian and Borders, Grampian, Highlands and Eilean Siar, Orkney and Shetland, as well as Central, Tayside and Fife are expected to experience thunderstorms.

The Met Office said: “Whilst there remains some uncertainty in whether thunderstorms develop as cooler conditions follow from the west, there is a chance that an organised line of thunderstorms could develop across northern Britain during Sunday afternoon before clearing east into the North Sea during the evening. This is more likely to happen across eastern parts of the warning area including northeast England and eastern Scotland.”

In Northern Ireland, the yellow warning will be in place from 2pm to 7pm. Eastern Northern Ireland, including Belfast and Newry, may see up to 20mm of rain in one hour, as well as occasional lightning and gusty winds of up to 40mph.

The Met Office warned that there is a “small chance” of flooding, travel disruption, and power outages. However, there are currently no flood warnings in place across Britain.

Britain is expected to be hot again today, with temperatures in the mid to high twenties and a possible 31°C in southeast England. Even at night, temperatures are predicted to remain tropical at 18°C.

The Met Office said that next week, temperatures are finally set to drop.
