Met Office have issued a yellow warning

The sunny weather could be brought to a close in some areas today, after the Met Office issued a warning over potential thunderstorms.

A yellow grade rain warning has been put out, meaning there is a low chance of high impact weather conditions.

A spokesperson from the Met Office said: “Isolated thunderstorms are likely to develop across parts of England and Wales from early Thursday morning before clearing by early Friday.

“While these storms may miss many places, where they do develop intense downpours are likely, bringing the threat of sudden flooding of roads, transport routes, homes and businesses. Lightning and hail may be additional hazards.”

The warning is in place until 2am tomorrow.
