Yellow warning for Cambridgeshire and the East of England as thunderstorms likely
Thunderstorms are likely to develop over parts of the Midlands and East Anglia today (Thursday, July 11), between 1pm and 9pm, with some disruption to power and transport possible.
There is a good chance driving conditions will be affected by spray, standing water and/or hail, leading to longer journey times by car and bus. Delays to train services are also possible, as is some short-term loss of power and other services.
Lightning strikes may cause some damage to a few buildings and other structures, while the flooding of a few homes and businesses is likely.
While many areas will be dry today, some thunderstorms are expected to develop during the afternoon, but should gradually die out from the west during the evening - though a few may persist into the night over the East Midlands and into East Anglia.
