Thunder and lightning expected tomorrow

by Amanda Taylor on 5 July, 2017

The Met Office is warning of the risk of torrential downpours and thunderstorms in Cambridgeshire tomorrow.

Very warm and very humid air is expected to arrive across many eastern and southern parts of the UK during tonight,  increasing the likelihood of some high rainfall totals falling over a short space of time.

Severe thunderstorms could occur during Thursday morning and early afternoon in the East of England and there is a further risk of thunderstorms developing later in the afternoon and then into the evening on Thursday.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning of rain for the county from 6am on Thursday until 2am on Friday and there could be localised surface water flooding, especially if downpours fall over urban areas, with difficult driving conditions and disruption to transport also possible. Lightning and large hail are additional hazards which could lead to isolated power outages.
