Met Office issues yellow weather warning covering Harrow

Harrow residents are urged to brace for potential flooding and travel disruptions as the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning in effect until 9pm today, Monday, May 6.

Forecasted thunderstorms and heavy rainfall nearby could lead to rapid flooding, impacting homes, businesses, and transportation services.

Travel could be affected with possible delays and cancellations across train and bus routes should flooding or lightning strikes occur.

Drivers are advised to exercise caution as spray and sudden flooding may lead to hazardous driving conditions and road closures.

While the likelihood is low, there remains a chance of building damage from floodwaters, as well as impacts from lightning, hail, or strong winds.

Some areas might face accessibility issues if roads become impassable due to rising water levels.

There are minimal risks of power outages and disruptions to other essential services.
