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.”
