Thunderstorms From: 10-08-2020 00:00 Until: 23:59 warning for: Thunderstorms Level: Yellow info button
Areas of thunderstorms are increasingly likely to develop over the south of the UK or nearby continent late on Sunday and will generally track north or north-westwards, potentially affecting all parts of the UK at some points during this period. Whilst the most intense thunderstorms, in some instances associated with large hail, will most probably be those triggered by the high temperatures of the day over England and Wales, other areas of storms producing heavy rainfall, frequent lightning and strong gusty winds could reach further north at times over Scotland and Northern Ireland. These could occur at any time of the day. Where the storms occur, rainfall totals of 30-40 mm could fall in an hour, with some locations potentially receiving 60-80 mm in 3 hours, although these will be fairly isolated. 

Month Ahead Forecast


Very hot and sunny. Thuderstorms possible.

Today: Mainly fine and very hot with sunshine once again, but with a chance of catching one or two heavy and potentially thundery showers, locally prolonged with hail also possible. Coastal districts should be less hot with an onshore breeze. Maximum Temperature 36C.

Tonight: Remaining very warm during the evening and overnight, with cloud amounts tending to increase, although any relieving showers will be few and far between, these more likely in the west. Minimum Temperature 16C.

Tuesday: Another very hot day, with many areas remaining dry throughout, although western areas may see some thundery showers developing later, perhaps heavy and prolonged in places. Maximum Temperature 37C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday: Relatively high uncertainty. Heatwave conditions continuing midweek, with scattered thunderstorms turning more widespread at times, locally severe and slow moving. Probably becoming less hot with fewer, lighter showers on Friday.

UK Outlook for Friday 14 Aug 2020 to Sunday 23 Aug 2020: Warm or very warm for many through to the end of next week, although cooler and fresher conditions will gradually move in from the west. A mixture of sunny spells and showers is expected, with a risk of some heavy downpours and thunderstorms. Over the weekend and into the following week, more settled, drier conditions will probably become established, although some thundery showers may still affect the southeast at first and there is a chance of thicker cloud bringing outbreaks of rain to the northwest at times. Fog patches are possible overnight for many although these will quickly clear through the mornings. Temperatures are likely to be warm for most parts of the UK well into the middle of August.

UK Outlook for Monday 24 Aug 2020 to Monday 7 Sep 2020: Confidence is low for this period. Northwestern areas of the UK will probably be changeable with periods of cloudy skies, outbreaks of rain and strengthening winds interspersed with drier, brighter spells. Further south and southeast it is likely to be drier and warmer with more in the way of sunshine. Hot conditions may affect the southeast at times, bringing a risk of thunderstorms which may spread further north at times. Towards the end of August and into early September, more changeable and cooler conditions may become more widely established across the UK as a whole.
