A yellow weather warning is in place for thunderstorms across Wales today (Sunday, June 18).

Sunny spells and scattered heavy showers are what the Met Office has predicted for North Wales during the weather warning today from 12pm until 23.59pm. 

The forecast today is as follows: “After a largely dry start, heavy showers and thunderstorms soon breaking out by the afternoon, especially in the east. Outside of showers, some warm but hazy sunny spells. Light winds, though perhaps gusty in heavy downpours.”

Tonight, the Met Office predicts that it will be cloudy with some late sunny spells. The showers will gradually ease, “though a chance that showers could merge into longer spells of heavy rain across the east before clearing overnight.”


Sarah Cook, National Flood Duty Manager at the Environment Agency said: “On Sunday afternoon and into the night, slow-moving heavy showers and thunderstorms could lead to localised surface water flooding across England.

“Environment Agency teams are out on the ground and will support local authorities in responding to surface water flooding. We urge people not to drive though flood water – it is often deeper than it looks and just 30cm of flowing water is enough to float your car.           

“People should check their flood risk, sign up for free flood warnings and keep up to date with the latest situation at https://www.gov.uk/check-if-youre-at-risk-of-flooding or follow @EnvAgency on Twitter for the latest flood updates.”

Monday is set to look cloudy with some showers first thing.

The Met Office said: “Cloud gradually breaking to give sunny spells and further scattered showers, locally heavy and thundery. Feeling warm and humid with light winds.”

Further into next week, the outlook for Tuesday to Thursday is as follows: “A mixture of sunny spells and scattered showers. These heavy and locally thundery with gusty winds. Staying warm in sunnier spells and generally quite humid leading to further muggy night.”
