THE Met Office has issued a warning for thunderstorms and heavy rain across Hitchin and north Herts from around lunchtime onwards until midnight today, (Tuesday, 20 July).

The yellow-rated alert (the lowest level of risk on the warning system, meaning 'be prepared') includes the following forecast:

"Although many places will miss them, some thunderstorms are likely to develop during Tuesday afternoon and evening, bringing torrential rain, frequent lightning, large hail and gusty winds.

"These thunderstorms could produce 30-60 mm of rain within 1-2 hours."

The warning covers a large area of London and the South East, including the whole of our area.
