A yellow weather warning has been issued for thunderstorms after a week of high temperatures across the UK and Northern Ireland. The Met Office advises that thunderstorms may bring disruption during Sunday afternoon and evening.
The warning is active from 2pm to 11:59pm on Sunday 10th September.
A spokesperson for the Met Office said:
"An area of thunderstorms is expected to develop over parts of England and Wales on Sunday then move north and northeast into Northern Ireland and parts of Scotland.
"Some large areas of rain are likely but many parts will see modest rainfall amounts. However, embedded intense rainfall may bring some very large rainfall totals with 30-50 mm in an hour or less possible and perhaps 70 mm or more in a few hours for unlucky locations.
"At the same time frequent lightning and large hail will be additional hazards."
