The Met Office is forecasting more thunderstorms

Potentially severe thunderstorms are likely tomorrow (Tuesday, June 25), bringing a possible risk of flooding and disruption to travel.

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

Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services, while spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

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

The thunderstorms are expected to spread north from France on Monday night before clearing away into the North Sea during Tuesday morning.

While some locations will miss these storms, where they do occur 20-30 mm of rain could fall in one hour, with a few spots perhaps seeing as much as 40-60 mm in an hour or two.

Hail, lightning and gusty winds are also likely in some places.
