Remnants of tropical storm Debby to lash Britain with thunderstorms and flooding

Thunderstorms will crash down on parts of England on Monday triggering a weather warning from the Met Office.

The yellow warning is in place between 11am and 10pm, and affects eastern England.

People living near the coast as far south as Suffolk and all the way to County Durham should expect heavy showers and storms to roll in for a wet start to the week.

Bonnie Diamond, a forecaster for the Met Office, told Metro.co.uk: ‘Eastern England will see heavy showers and thunderstorms, becoming more widespread through the afternoon.

‘There is a risk of flooding, leading to difficult driving conditions and road closures, and possible flooding of homes and businesses.’

Some areas could see between 20mm and 30mm of rainfall in just an hour.

The Met Office has also warned that lightning, hail and powerful winds are likely and could be disruptive.

Ms Diamond added: ‘The eastern part of the UK is likely to see warm temperatures, and those warm temperatures are enough to trigger the showers.’

However, the bad weather is set to only last for one day and will clear up before midnight.

For the rest of Britain, the weather will be a mixed bag on Monday.

It’s due to be a lovely day in Wales and south west England, with sunshine and temperatures in the low 20s, Ms Diamond said.

But it is set to be more cloudy in Scotland and Northern Ireland, with the chance of rain.
