Forecasters predict exactly when thunderstorms may hit Nottingham

By Joseph Locker

Weather forecasters say thunder and lightning could very well hit Nottingham later today as the 28C mini-heatwave comes to an end.

For those who love to bask under the scorching sun it will be a shame, with many people making the most of the glorious weather by canoeing at Highfields Park, sunbathing on the Victoria Embankment and sailing down the Trent with a beer in hand.

For others, however, the expected "thundery showers and gentle breeze" will be a welcome relief.

The Met Office has issued a yellow thunderstorms warning for most of the country, bar some areas of the south including London, and BBC Weather has now issued a time-frame for when we can expect them.

According to the BBC thunder and lightning could begin at 3pm and last until 6pm throughout Thursday, September 9.

Temperatures will sit around the 21-22C mark.

The forecast says: "This morning, it will be mostly dry and cloudy. In the afternoon, a few sunny spells will develop, however, there will be heavy and thundery showers. A cooler day.

"Tonight, the showers will clear to the north and it will be mostly dry. There will be plenty of clear spells, with some patchy cloud around at times."

The Met Office thunderstorm warning is in place from 10am until 8pm.
