In various parts of northern, eastern and south-eastern England, along with London, it will be raining cats and dogs.
Some of the showers passing through south-eastern England towards western England are to be paired with lightning and thunder. Some of the regions nearby will be experiencing powerful wind. All the residents and tourists are advised to stay alert, as there are possibilities for flash flood in some of the coastal areas due to the strong northern winds.
Chief forecaster of the Met Office assessed, “A thundery low will pass close to the southeast of England, bringing a band of rain with it. This is likely to contain thundery elements and locally very intense rain, bringing the risk of 20mm in the hour and more than 60mm in a few hours.”
The Met Office also added, “A slow moving frontal will bring very moist and unstable air. Rainfall totals are likely to be in the region of 15 to 25mm, but near coasts and windward hills, local totals of more than 50mm are quite possible.”
The Met Office informed that the temperature of the eastern England is expected to remain above 20C despite of the heavy thunderstorm. People are expected to endure the stormy weather from Tuesday night to Wednesday morning.
