Tuesday from all accounts looks set to be one of the hottest of the year as temperatures ‘rocket’ ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Hose pipe bans, severe drought, loss of crops and near death could all prevail if the ‘media’ are taken with anything larger than a pinch of salt following our one and a half day heatwave. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Alas, with heat comes rain in Flintshire, and the Met Office are kindly warning people there could be plenty with ‘severe thunderstorms’ developing across Wales, northern England and the Midlands. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The ‘risk’ is greatest during Wednesday, say the Met bods adding “most places will miss the worst, please be aware of the risk of flash flooding.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

But, “frequent lightning, large hail and strong winds could be additional hazards.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Chief weather bod at the Met Office says: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Very warm, moist air spreading north and northeast across the western side of the UK is expected to produce thunderstorms later on Tuesday, then transfer eastwards during Wednesday. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Rainfall will be very variable, and the extent of thunderstorms is uncertain, but some places could see around 30 mm in an hour and more than 50 mm in a few hours.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
