2 mins read


Thunderstorms and areas of heavy rain will develop quite widely on Wednesday across southern England, the Met said as it warned some communities may become cut off by “flooded roads” while¬†fast flowing or deep floodwater could pose a “danger to life”. The alert impacts the East Midlands, East of England, London & South East England, South West England and West Midlands.

The Met urged motorists to beware of spray and sudden flooding, which could lead to “difficult driving conditions and some road closures”.

Delays and some cancellations to train and bus services should be expected in areas where flooding or lightning strikes occur, the weather service added.

There is a small chance that “homes and businesses could be flooded quickly”, forecasters said, and that some buildings could be damaged “from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds”.

Meanwhile, there is a slight chance power cuts may occur, they added, while other services to some homes and businesses might be lost.
