Lancashire Met Office weather forecast for rest of the weekend as thunderstorms warning issued for parts of northern England

The Met Office has warned that thunderstorms may cause disruption and localised flooding across northern England on Sunday with more heavy rain forecast for Lancashire.

A yellow weather warning is in force from 1pm to 9pm tomorrow (June 25). It narrowly misses East Lancashire and covers North East England, Yorkshire and Humber, the East Midlands, Dumfries, Galloway, Lothian and Borders, Grampian, Highlands and Eilean Siar, Orkney and Shetland as well as Central, Tayside and Fife.

Some across the UK are enjoying the summer sunshine but could soon see lightning, hail and strong winds, forecasters say. The thunderstorms could cause localised flooding and rainfall will “vary significantly, but some locations could see 30-40mm in 1-2 hours”, according to the forecaster.

Some places could see hail that is up to 3cm in diameter along with strong, gusty winds. Lancashire is set to miss the worst of the bad weather, however rain will fall across the region on Sunday after a sunshine-filled Saturday.

Rain will sweep in from around midday and last until 5pm before a sunnier evening. The rain is set to continue into the start of next week, with eastern areas including Blackburn the worst affected.

The Met Office said: “Whilst there remains some uncertainty in whether thunderstorms develop as cooler conditions follow from the west, there is a chance that an organised line of thunderstorms could develop across northern Britain during Sunday afternoon before clearing east into the North Sea during the evening. This is more likely to happen across eastern parts of the warning area including northeast England and eastern Scotland.”
