Met Office warns of heavy and thundery downpours

The weather forecast isn't looking good at 9am

The chief forecaster's assessment added that a slowly southward-moving weather system will give 15-30 mm of rain quite widely across the area, with possibly as much as 60-80 mm in places through the whole day.

The Environment Agency is expecting the river Leen in Nottinghamshire to flood, while areas around the North Sea coast at Scarborough have been put on alert.

A yellow weather warning for rainfall was issued on Tuesday (August 8) morning, with around 3cm of rain expected to fall between then and Wednesday (August 9) evening.

Large swathes of central Europe will also be battered by torrential downpours and hurricane-force winds.

The rain was so severe in Grimsby it caused the football team's fixture with Derby to be postponed due to a waterlogged pitch last night.


Flash flooding hit towns and villages in the East Riding of Yorkshire and north-east Lincolnshire.

Travel disruption is possible with a threat of localised flooding with up to 40mm rain falling in a short space of time.

The Met Office has warned that flooding of homes and businesses is possible. "The heaviest of the rain should gradually become confined to the extreme southeast of the United Kingdom later in the day".

In their south west summary, Met Office said: "A cloudy and cool day with heavy showers or longer spells of rain for most areas".
