Met Office issues warning for thunderstorms as month's worth of rain to fall TODAY

Looks like we might have to stay indoors...

Get those brollies up, quick – it looks like we're set for some pretty extreme weather today!

The Met Office has predicted that parts of England and Scotland will be battered by thunderstorms this afternoon, with up to 30mm of rain expected to fall in the space of an hour.

It's not all bad news, however, as it's been claimed that the UK could enjoy warm temperatures this weekend...

This morning, the Met Office's official Twitter feed published a map of Britain, featuring a dreaded yellow warning.

It covers the north-east of the country, stretching from Scotland down to East Anglia.

Those areas are due for a drenching, with some parts set to experience flash floods.

Heavy showers and thunderstorms are likely to develop during Thursday afternoon across parts of Scotland and northern England.

The Met Office stated: "Heavy showers and thunderstorms are likely to develop during Thursday afternoon across parts of Scotland and northern England.

"Whilst many areas will miss the heaviest rain, where heavy showers and thunderstorms do develop they will be slow-moving, bringing the potential for 20-30mm of rain in an hour and 40-50mm in 2-3 hours."

On the plus side, the Met Office predicted that the rain will start to die off on Thursday evening, paving the way for some good weather at the weekend.

According to the Mirror, Saturday will be cloudy, but Sunday will bring sunshine, with some parts of the country experiencing temperatures of up to 25C.

So maybe we could be getting the barbecues out after all!
