The southeast of England and East Anglia have been issued with yellow warnings for thunder, which could come with some dangers to people and could even see floods.

The Met Office said there would be “heavy showers” and “thunderstorms”.

The meteorologists said: “Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

“There is a small chance that some communities become cut off by flooded roads.

“There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost.

“Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services.

“There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes or strong winds.”

The warning is set to remain in place from 12am to 8pm.

Then a second warning, this time for “heavy rain”, is in place for the northern section of the Midlands and parts of the North of England.

The Office said this could lead to: “Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer.

“Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer.

“Flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible.”

This warning is set to remain in place from 1am in the morning until 1pm.
