We’ve had a lovely stint of weather over the last week with temperatures being consistently high across Yorkshire – sticky weather we know… And, now it seems that Monday is set to be a wet one with a yellow weather warning covering most of the UK.
Monday the 15th of August a yellow warning will come into place from 6am lasting throughout and into Tuesday.
From one weather warning to another with parts of Yorkshire issued with a heatwave warning only this weekend, it looks like heavy rainfall is set to cause possible disruption tomorrow.
The Met Office spokesman said: “Hit-and-miss thunderstorms likely to develop through Monday, producing some torrential downpours for some spots, and possible disruption.
“While some places stay dry, others are likely to see thunderstorms during Tuesday with torrential rain bringing some disruption.”
We are set to expect ‘locally heavy rain and possible disruption’ Monday, according to the Met Office.
Towns and cities given a yellow weather warning by the Met Office include Leeds, Sheffield, York, Doncaster, Harrogate and Bradford along with surrounding areas.
What To Expect From A Yellow Warning:
- There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds
- Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services
- Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures
- There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost
