Met Office thunderstorm warnings are now in force for four days across England, with the risk of hail, strong winds and heavy rain for much of the country. Starting on Wednesday the warnings last until Saturday, June 19 and cover much of England, with uncertainty over exact location and timing.

Updating the warnings today the Met Office wrote: “Although there remains significant uncertainty in location and timing, areas of thunderstorms are expected to move northeast across parts of England and Wales from late Wednesday through to Friday morning.

“Whilst not all locations will be affected, some intense thunderstorms may occur during this period with torrential rain, hail, frequent lightning and strong gusty winds possible.

“Rainfall totals of around 30 mm could fall in an hour, with some locations potentially receiving around 50 mm in 2-3 hours, although these will be fairly isolated.”
