Another thunder warning has been issued by the Met Office starting on Sunday and ending Monday.

Although just sunshine and a gentle breeze is forecast for Brighton at present, the warning says storms may develop anywhere across England and Wales, apart from the south west.

The warning says: “Spells of rain are expected to affect many areas at times from Sunday afternoon and into Monday, moving north-northeastward and perhaps turning thundery at times in some places.

“Scattered heavy showers and thunderstorms may also develop between bands of rain, particularly on Monday afternoon.

“Where thunderstorms do develop, 20 to 30 mm rain may fall locally in an hour, and close to 40 mm of rain may fall in two or three hours.”
