BRITS have been warned of ‘danger to life’ as thunderstorms are set to sweep the nation.
The Met Office has issued a weather warning for today as thunder and lightning will batter much of the UK, according to forecasts.
According to reports, these storms could lead to further travel chaos, as trains and busses are halted. Even festival goers attending Glastonbury could be affected.
In a statement on its website, the Met Office said: “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.
“There is a small chance of fast-flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life.”
They went on to say: “These torrential downpours may be accompanied by frequent lightning, whilst gusty winds and hail may also affect a few places.
“The exact location of the thunderstorms will be hard to pinpoint, so the warning area will be kept under review and updated if necessary.”
Despite these warnings, Brits are set to bask in glorious temperatures tomorrow, as the mercury hits 28C in some spots.
