Yellow weather warning of thunderstorms issued for Harrow

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for thunderstorms across London, effective from 11pm tonight until 6am tomorrow, Thursday.

The alert includes all parts of London, including Harrow. Residents are advised to prepare for potential disruptions due to the likelihood of heavy rainfall and lightning.

The forecast indicates that thunderstorms will progress northwestward through London later this evening and into the night. These storms are expected to produce between 15 to 25 mm of rain within just one or two hours in certain locations.

Commuters should anticipate possible travel disruptions and some flooding. The specific impacts expected include difficult driving conditions due to spray and sudden flooding, which may also lead to road closures.

The Met Office noted that train and bus services might face delays and cancellations if flooding or lightning strikes occur.

There is also a slight chance of power cuts, which could affect other services to homes and businesses.

The potential for quick flooding could result in damage to buildings due to floodwater, lightning, hail, or strong winds. Residents and businesses should monitor updates and take necessary precautions.
