A WEATHER warning is in place for thunderstorms, following the heatwave this weekend in Worcestershire.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for thunderstorms on Monday (August 10).

While Worcestershire will bask in temperatures of up to 29 degrees Celsius degrees today and for most of tomorrow, downpours could dampen spirits on Monday.

The yellow weather warning is in place until Wednesday (August 12).

This comes after the nation experienced the highest day of the year so far on Thursday, with temperatures topping 30 degrees.

Dave Throup, environment agency manager for Herefordshire and Worcestershire, said: "All the ingredients are in place for a very thundery spell of weather through next week.

"Could be some severe storms.

"But, as is usual, likely to be hit and miss so some places miss altogether.

"Uncertainty results in this unusual flood outlook.

"Stay tuned."

Advice from the Met Office for a yellow weather warning states: "Flooding of homes and businesses could happen quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds.

"Fast flowing or deep floodwater is possible, causing a danger to life. 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.

"Some communities might become cut off if roads flood. Power cuts might occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost."
