Exactly when London will be hit by thunderstorms and heavy rain this week

It’s shaping up to be a miserable couple of days for the capital as we’re set to experience thunderstorms. According to the Met Office, today (September 17) and tomorrow (September 18) are set to experience gloomy weather as a yellow weather warning has been issued.

This means there is a small chance of disturbances due to “severe” thunderstorms. Some homes could quickly be submerged, which could also wreck train lines, halting transportation. The Met Office also said half a month’s worth of rain could fall within an hour in parts of the UK in the coming days.

It can even lead to power outages and flooding. The upcoming weather forecast for London can be found below. MyLondon has compiled hour-by-hour weather forecasts so you can be sure you know the exact time to pack your umbrella.
