Weather update - Yorkshire & Lincolnshire - Into the new week

We needed the rain, and then it came, and now we could really do without it!

Although showers will continue to threaten flooded parts of Lincolnshire on Sunday, we're hoping for a drier 48 hour window to follow.

All meteorological eyes then looks towards Tuesday, late evening onwards. A thundery plume is expected to move north and east, across North Notts, Lincolnshire and parts of East Yorkshire.

Warning areas are likely to be modified as we get nearer to the event but because of recent flooding in and around Wainfleet the Met Office has issued the 'Be Aware' warning that a further 20-30mm of rainfall could fall in a short space of time, locally up to 50mm.

Visit the The Environment Agency website for the latest FLOOD WARNINGS in place over parts of Lincolnshire.

Visit the Met Office Weather Warnings page for the latest weather info.

SUNDAY:

Cloud increasing with showers developing, these occasionally heavy and perhaps thundery during the afternoon. Feeling warm by the afternoon in sheltered eastern areas with a southwesterly breeze. Highs to 20°C.

OVERNIGHT:

Some evening sunshine is likely, but showers will continue through the evening and overnight, especially over western hills, with sometimes brisk southwesterly winds by dawn. A milder night. Lows 12°C.

MONDAY:

Broken cloud and occasional showers, sometimes persistent, occasionally heavy. Southwesterly winds will be brisk over exposed areas, but feeling pleasant in the more sheltered southeast with sunnier intervals. Highs 21°C.

Warning in place for Tuesday evening 6pm to Wednesday 9pm. Positioning and timings are likely to be modified as we get nearer to event. Credit: MET OFFICE
