Written by Gavin on 27th August 2020
The Met Office have issued a Yellow Weather Warning for Thunderstorms in Wales from 11am Friday morning through to 8pm Friday evening. .
Heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop quite quickly later on Friday morning, but peaking during the afternoon for many, before probably becoming more restricted to the southeast and south coastal counties towards evening. Some places will miss the heavier rain, but other locations could see around 20 mm within an hour and perhaps 30 to 40 mm in around 3 hours, sufficient to cause issues on the roads.
What to expect
- There is a good chance driving conditions will be affected by spray, standing water or hail, leading to longer journey times by car and bus
- Delays to train services are possible
- Perhaps damage to a few buildings and structures from lightning strikes
- Some short term loss of power is possible
