After the warm sunny weather of the past few days, Thursday again will come to an end with thunderstorms moving in from France. The thunderstorms are not expected to last long and by Friday afternoon many will see blue skies and warm conditions return, but the weekend is generally unstable as far as weather is concerned.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning to be active from 10 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Thursday.
The yellow warning is the lowest of the Met Office’s warnings, warning of thunder and rain showers Thursday.
The concern is that there may be travel disruption due to the weather, which would add further chaos given the RMT union strikes this week.
There may be a small chance of flooding in some areas where it can occur quickly and cause damage to some buildings from flooding, lightning, hail or high winds.
The Met Office has warned that “where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a potential for delays and some cancellations of train and bus services.
“System and flash flooding can lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.”
It also warned of a “small chance” of power outages in some homes and businesses or the loss of other services in these areas.
The warning area is large and under review by the Met Office, as the exact location for the storms is difficult to identify at this time.

There is hope for the rest of the week, however, as BBC meteorologist Darren Bett has provided positive news on Friday’s weather.
With much of the wet weather clearing up by then, there will be some sunshine in the south of England, particularly in East Anglia.
Temperatures for Friday will reach 23C in London and other southern areas and between 19C and 22C in the north and Scotland.
