Wales: Met office announced Thunderstorm warning for Monday


A weather warning for thunderstorms has been enforced for large parts of Wales from mid-day on Monday.

The Met Office announced the warning of flooding and travel disruption to the travelling drivers, with the alert in force from 14:00 BST.


The warning includes seventeen of Wales’ twenty-two local authority areas, covering parts of north and western coastal communities to escape the worst of the weather.

It said that areas might see 30mm (1.2in) of torrential rain in an hour and 80mm (3.1in) in three hours.

The Met Office warned that the driving conditions would likely be affected by heavy showers, standing water, hail and gusty winds, leading to longer journey time”.

The Met Office added that there could be some damage to a few buildings and structures from either lightning strikes or gusty winds, which will also likely lead to short-term loss of power.

The warning area in Wales covers Blaenau Gwent, Bridgend, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Carmarthenshire, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Merthyr Tydfil, Monmouthshire, Neath Port Talbot, Newport, Powys, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Swansea, Torfaen, Vale of Glamorgan and Wrexham.

The recently Met office announced the UK to witness the hottest summer after 1884. The Met Office stated that since 2003, four of the five warmest summers on record for the UK have occurred as human-induced climate change is felt in the summer temperatures of the UK.


July is considered summer and the warmest month of the year when in the UK, the temperature intersected 40C for the first time, as climate change has led to intense heat waves.

The heat waves led to the decay of many homes and cars due to high temperatures.

According to Met Office data from the year 1836, the UK witnessed the sixth-driest summer on record and the driest since 1995.

Due to the high temperature in the UK, the country suffered from drought after months of less rainfall, with severe hot and dry conditions leading to the drying up of rivers, damaging crops, and drying up of rivers fuelling wildfires that have destroyed homes and land.
