Thunderstorms could be heading to Sussex after Met alert
12:20pm Wednesday 24th July 2013 in News
Sussex is bracing itself for thunderstorms after the Met Office issued a warning.
The national meteorological service said heavy showers would hit the southeast on Saturday afternoon and last until Sunday morning.
It is warning of possible flooding following the severe downpours.
The chief forecaster said: "Heavy showers or thunderstorms may affect at least some southeastern and eastern parts of England later on Saturday or during early Sunday.
"The public should be aware of the risk of localised disruption to travel due to surface water flooding.
"An area of heavy showers and thunderstorms developing over France during Saturday may move northwards to affect at least parts of eastern and southeastern England later on Saturday or early on Sunday.
"There is a chance that these showers and thunderstorms may also affect parts of southern and central England, but at this stage this aspect of the forecast is subject to a greater degree of uncertainty."
Brighton and Hove escaped the heavy rain and flooding that was forecast earlier this week but looks set to see some of the unsettled weather following the recent heatwave.
