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.
