Weather Warning


With the increasing heat today comes the risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms through this afternoon and into this evening. There’s the usual uncertainty about when and where these will form, but our current best estimate suggests storms forming in northern England/southern Scotland, and tracking northwards through the late afternoon and evening, clearing to the north overnight. So, at the moment, it’s looking like southern and eastern Scotland are most at risk of seeing localised impacts – not everywhere within these regions will see showers but where they do occur there is the potential to see some localised flooding and also potential impacts from hail and lightning
