Weather forecast tomorrow – UK ‘danger to life’ warning as Met Office says thunderstorms will batter the country

BRITS have been warned of ‘danger to life’ as thunderstorms are set to sweep the nation.

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for Thursday, as thunder and lightning batter much of the UK.

According to reports, these storms could lead to further travel chaos, as trains and busses are halted. Even festival goers attending Glastonbury could be affected.

In a statement on its website, the Met Office said: “There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds.

“There is a small chance of fast-flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life.”

They went on to say: “These torrential downpours may be accompanied by frequent lightning, whilst gusty winds and hail may also affect a few places.

“The exact location of the thunderstorms will be hard to pinpoint, so the warning area will be kept under review and updated if necessary.”

Despite these warnings, Brits are set to bask in glorious temperatures tomorrow, as the mercury hits 28C in some spots.

  • HUGE solar storm could cause CHAOS on Earth

    A solar flare, which is an explosion on the sun’s surface, has DOUBLED in size.

    NASA explains: “The explosive heat of a solar flare can’t make it all the way to our globe, but electromagnetic radiation and energetic particles certainly can.

    “Solar flares can temporarily alter the upper atmosphere creating disruptions with signal transmission from, say, a GPS satellite to Earth causing it to be off by many yards.”

    A solar storm can emit amazing northern lights and can disrupt phone signals and satellites.

  • Mostly dry and sunny in days ahead

    Met Office officials said the UK would mostly enjoy a dry and sunny few days ahead – after thunderstorms and lightning over last weekend.

    Met Office Forecaster Simon Partridge said: “After a rather changeable weekend we’re expecting the weather to settle down this week as high pressure develops.

    “This high pressure builds in from the west of the UK during the first half of the week bringing lots of dry fine weather to all parts except the far northwest.”

  • Bring ‘both sun hats and raincoats’ to Glasto, says Met Office

    Brits should prepare for mixed weather if they are heading to Glastonbury this week, the Met Office has said.

    Met Office Deputy Meteorologist Helen Caughey said; “You should plan for both sunhats and raincoats for this year’s festival.

    “There will be plenty of sunshine on Wednesday across the South West, although there could be a bit more cloud later in the day, and temperatures will reach 26C or 27C. The dry, sunny and warm theme will continue through Thursday.

    “However, from Friday onwards the weather will become more unsettled. There is a risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms in the Glastonbury area on both Friday and Saturday, although these should be quick moving, some surface water might accumulate at times. Temperatures will start to dip as we go through the end of the week returning to near normal for the time of year, with highs likely around 18-20C.

    “Sunday is expected to be mostly dry and bright at first but with showers once again developing through the morning, some of which could be heavy, and possibly thundery. The unsettled pattern is expected to continue to dominate into the start of next week.”
