Risk Of Flash Floods Tomorrow

The UK Met Office has issued a ‘Yellow’ weather warning for the South tomorrow. The warning is from midday to 9pm. Forecasters say torrential downpours over the space of an hour could cause flash flooding in some areas.

The Met Office  warns of a “danger to life” risk caused by “fast flowing or deep flood water.” The warning also encompasses the risk of thunderstorms and hail.

It looks like we could be in for a bit of rain

Met Office chief meteorologist Neil Armstrong has said that some places will not feel the full force of this warning. He said: “Although some places will miss these heavy showers and thunderstorms, where they do occur they’ll be quite lively bringing torrential downpours with 25 to 35mm rain falling in an hour and a few places seeing perhaps 40 to 50mm rain in a couple of hours.

The towns included in the warning are:

Ashford
Canterbury
Dover and Deal
Folkestone
Lydd
Maidstone
Orpington
Sandwich
Snodland
Tonbridge
Tunbridge Wells

So most of Kent then! Forecasters also advise not to use an umbrella in a storm, so you may get a thorough soaking if caught outside. Met Office chief meteorologist Neil Armstrong said “Don’t say we didn’t warn you!”.
