Buses and cars were left stranded when roads across London flooded yesterday, as repeated thunderstorms battered the British capital.
Social media users posted videos of partially submerged vehicles in south west London, with more heavy rain set to fall as a band of thunderstorms made its way across southeast England. The Met Office issued an amber weather warning across London and surrounding counties. It warned there was a risk of lightning strikes and flooding, with up to 10 centimetres of rain forecast to fall in some areas, almost double the monthly average for July.
Parts of the North Circular road have been closed. Homes and businesses are at risk with storms set to continue until today, the Met Office has warned. Drier weather with temperatures of up to 24C are expected tomorrow in central and southern England, with up to 18C in northern England and Scotland. Wednesday is forecast to be warmer, with the mercury climbing to a maximum of 26C in the south and 24C in the north, the Met Office said.
