The stunning weather we’ve enjoyed for the last few days is set to come to an abrupt end today according to the Met Office who have issued a yellow weather alert for Flintshire.
They say many places will remain dry this afternoon, but there is potential for some heavy showers and thunderstorms to break out.
There is a possibility of surface water flooding and disruption to travel where torrential downpours do occur.
Temperatures will remain warm reaching today reaching up to 20°C however, heavy thundery showers could hit Flintshire from 1pm, they will ‘turn locally torrential with the risk of hail in some places’ say the Met Office – hopefully swerving Deeside!
The warning is in place between 1pm and 9pm.
Chief Forecaster’s says:
“Thunderstorms are most likely to break out over high ground this afternoon, but there is potential for these to drift into low lying, urban areas. The torrential downpours will be slow moving and there could be more than 20 mm in an hour locally, with more than 40 mm in a few hours possible.
