While the weather is expected to settle over today and tomorrow, the Met office has warned more storms could be on their way.

Met Office warning: “The public should be aware that there is a chance of some very localised significant disruption

“On Friday evening another hot and increasingly humid airmass is expected to spread into the south from the Continent.

“This airmass looks conducive to the development of isolated thunderstorms during the evening across England and Wales which could become more frequent later in the night as they spread northwards towards Scotland.”
