Weather: THUNDERSTORM WARNING TODAY

There is the potential for thunderstorms to develop during Friday afternoon, lasting well into the evening and perhaps developing into larger areas of heavy rain.

The thunderstorms will clear away after midnight, perhaps lingering in the far north east of England into the early hours of Saturday.

Where the thunderstorms occur torrential downpours are possible with as much as 30 mm of rainfall in 1 hour and 60 mm in 3 hours.

Large hail, frequent lightning and strong, gusty winds will be additional hazards.

However, many places will see much lower rainfall amounts.
