Following on from thunder, lightning and very heavy rain this morning (with temporary some loss of power in places), the weather switched to hazy, warm and sunny, creating a day of two halves.
However, the thunder/lightning risk is here to stay awhile yet. The weather is very strange at the moment. According to the Met Office, Bude has warnings for fog later on this evening, much of it persisting into tomorrow morning.
The hot weather will continue across the UK, with heatwave conditions for many, creating ideal conditions for thunderstorms which will bring heavy rain and increasing risks from flash flooding, lightning and hail.
For anyone travelling, yellow thunderstorm warnings are in place across the country between now and Thursday. Thunderstorms will be severe in some places on Thursday. Location and timing seem a little hit and miss at the moment.
