The Met Office has issued yellow weather warning spanning much of the West and North of England, all of Scotland and all of Northern Ireland today. The unseasonably wet weather will see the temperatures plunge after days of balmy heat across the UK. NetweatherTV said: “On Thursday a band of rain will move northwards, spreading through most of England and Wales overnight Wednesday/Thursday and then becoming slow-moving across northern England and southern Scotland.
“There may again be some thunderstorms embedded in the rain, especially in the south.
“Following behind, brighter weather with scattered thundery showers will develop over the rest of England and Wales, and this will also spread into Northern Ireland.”
The forecasters have warned that where the weather is the most severe, homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds.
There is also a chance that some rural communities could temporarily become cut off by flooded roads.
Transport links could be adversely affected and roads blocked off from flood water or fallen debris so people are advised to check their journeys ahead of time to manage possible delays.
