LONDON HEAVY RAIN ALERT......YOUR UMBRELLA!

London is on flood alert with another few days of heavy rain and stormy weather forecast. 



The capital has been hit by thunder storms and downpours in recent weeks as areas of low pressure continue to move slowly across the country. The South East could all see as much as 25mm of rain in an hour today, forecasters warned. Tuesday saw the rain put a dampener on proceedings at Ascot, soaking racegoers. It also delayed the start of play at Queen’s Club in London for the tennis Aegon Championships and the bad weather is unlikely to ease until Friday at the earliest. The Met Office has put yellow warnings in place and advised that localised flooding and travel disruption are likely in the areas affected by the heavy rain. The warnings are also in place for Thursday when lightning is an additional hazard. The chief forecaster said: “Rising temperatures will trigger slow-moving heavy showers and thunderstorms. “Once again, 15mm-25mm are likely to fall within an hour in scattered locations, bringing the risk of flooding, especially across urban areas.”
