An amber severe weather warning for parts of the UK has been issued by the Met Office as intense thunderstorms are expected this weekend which could cause disruption.

Paul Gundersen, chief meteorologist for the Met Office, said: “We have storms affecting parts of the UK from three separate sources, each having the potential to affect slightly different areas at different times of the day.

“This means a large area is at potential risk from these storms, as identified by the amber warning, but not everywhere will see them - some spots could see a relatively fine day.

“This alert identifies the area of risk and where the thunderstorms do form we could see localised flooding, as well as the risks that go with lightning and hail. We’d advise people to stay up to date with our latest forecasts and warnings as the situation progresses.”

In Doncaster heavy thundery rain will move north during the morning with some sunny spells developing. However, further thundery showers are likely later in the day. Feeling very warm and humid. Maximum Temperature 25C.

Tonight it will remain warm and humid overnight with further thundery showers likely at first, but becoming mostly dry and rather cloudy at times later. Minimum Temperature 15C.
