A stormy afternoon in prospect, warns Met Office

HERE we go again... the Met Office has issued another yellow weather warning for thunder and lightning right across Dumfries and Galloway this afternoon and evening. They say: "Slow-moving heavy showers and thunderstorms will break out across many parts of the UK again on Wednesday afternoon. "Some places will miss them, but where they do occur they will bring torrential downpours with 25 to 35 mm rain falling in an hour and perhaps 50 to 60 mm in 2 to 3 hours in one or two places. "Lightning and hail will be additional hazards. These showers and thunderstorms will only slowly die out through the evening." Today's warning follows on from a similar one yesterday and covers parts of Northern Ireland, Ayrshire, the Scottish Borders and Dumfries and Galloway.
