The Met Office has updated Yellow thunderstorm warnings for London, the East and West Midlands and the south east of England. It warned of potential flooding, hail and lightning.

The Met Office said in a statement: “Earlier thundery rain is now in the process of clearing northeastwards, but following a brief brighter interlude (albeit with scattered heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms), further heavy rain and thunderstorms are expected to spread northwards later this afternoon and evening, particularly across southern and then eastern parts of England, easing through the early hours of Monday morning.

“A few locations could see 20-30 mm falling within an hour and as much as 40 to 60 mm in two -three hours. Frequent lightning, squally winds and hail are also possible, these thundery hazards probably focused across southeastern parts of England.”
