West Sussex braced for thunderstorms and heavy showers


Thunderstorms and heavy showers are likely to hit West Sussex tomorrow (Friday September 19), the Met Office has warned.

A yellow warning was issued for the county this morning (Thursday September 18).

The warning reads: “Heavy showers and thunderstorms are likely to spread from the south across some southern and western parts of England, and also Wales, on Thursday night - the risk then continuing through much of Friday.

“Many places will miss these but the public should be aware of the potential for isolated disruption due to surface water flooding, lightning strikes and hail.”
