A warning for isolated heavy, and possibly severe, thunderstorms has been issued for Lincolnshire from Friday evening through to Saturday lunchtime.

The warning is valid from Friday evening through until Saturday lunchtime.

The warning is valid from Friday evening through until Saturday lunchtime.

The Met Office yellow warning  of rain is valid from 7pm on Friday, July 3 until around 12 noon on Saturday, July 4.

The warning forecasts some torrential downpours leading to localised surface water flooding, with large hail and frequent lightening.

The Met Office Chief Forecaster states: “On Friday evening another hot and increasingly humid airmass is expected to spread into the south from the Continent.

“With large amounts of energy again available in this atmosphere storms could be severe, with torrential downpours and large hail. 30 mm of rain is possible in less than an hour, with as much as 50 mm possible in 3 hours very locally.”

“Large uncertainty remains regarding areas most at risk from storms, and many areas will miss these altogether, staying largely dry. However, where they do develop, disruption is possible.”
