The Met Office has issued a Yellow Warning for London and the South East of England.

Despite the country enjoying highs of 30°C since the start of June, large parts of the country could be coated with heavy rain between 6pm on Wednesday, June 16 and Friday, June 18.

It is also believed that thunderstorms and potential travel disruption and flooding could occur.

The Met Office said: “Although there remains significant uncertainty in location and timing, areas of thunderstorms are expected to move northeast across parts of England and Wales from late Wednesday through to Friday morning.

“Whilst not all locations will be affected, some intense thunderstorms may occur during this period with torrential rain, hail, frequent lightning, and strong gusty winds possible.

“Rainfall totals of around 30 mm could fall in an hour, with some locations potentially receiving around 50 mm in 2-3 hours, although these will be fairly isolated.”

Following the news, the Met Office has also issued some tips to the residents of the capital and the South East of what they need to do to avoid disruption.

They have recommended the following:

• There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail and strong winds

• Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services

• Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures

• There is a small chance that some communities become cut off by flooded roads

• There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost
