PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Heavy rain has brought flash flooding and thunderstorms to the UK as forecasters warn of 'danger to life' after England endures scorching 93.2F (34C) heat - but experts warn that even three days of downpours will not fully relieve bone-dry Britain. The Met Office has issued three days of alerts after weeks of soaring temperatures saw a drought declared across more than half of England.However experts have warned that it will take 'weeks' of heavy rainfall to help parts of the country recover from the driest July on record, as the ground will struggle to absorb the water and surface run-off causes flooding. Temperatures reached 93.2F (34C) on Sunday as the UK braces for three days of rain and yellow weather warnings. The Met Office said Charlwood, in Surrey, recorded the highest temperature with 93.4F (34.1C).Thunderstorms are now expected in northern parts of the country, with the forecaster having issued a yellow weather warning from noon on Sunday through to midnight on Monday for most of Scotland and Northern Ireland.It has also warned of 'torrential rain' that could cause flash flooding and power cuts while spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions for motorists.This was escalated to an amber warning in parts of Northern Ireland, which states that 'fast flowing or deep floodwater is likely — causing danger to life'. The yellow warning then spreads to England and Wales on Monday and Tuesday, with just the south west and south east of England facing a third day of yellow warnings on Wednesday until midnight, as the rain eases off elsewhere.Businesses and homes may be at risk of sudden flooding, with masses of water from rainfall able to cut off communities if it is heavy enough.This flash flooding can be difficult to predict as it depends on how dry the soil is, and where in the area thunderstorms break, officials warned. On Sunday, Inverness in Scotland was hit with heavy rainfall that caused flash flooding in a Tesco supermarket, and rain breaking through the ceiling in a Vue Cinema.Customers were evacuated from the supermarket after water poured in through the ceiling.  Videos on social media showed tiles on the ceiling falling to the floor and water pouring in, covering most of the floor in the supermarket.The area was affected by heavy thunderstorms and torrential rain for most of the day.It comes as several wildfires erupted across England in recent days amid the driest summer in half a century. With the ground in this state, there is a risk that 'dry thunderstorms' will cause more wildfires, Met Office officials told the Telegraph.'Dry thunderstorms' occur when the rain evaporates before it hits the ground, with lightning striking the dry land and igniting flames.  Two women wade through flood water at a Tesco store in Inverness as heavy rain hits the area on Sunday  Water comes through the Tesco store in Inverness after heavy rainfall on Sunday afternoon  Rain pours through the ceiling in the Tesco store, after high temperatures  more videos 1 2 3 Watch video Anne Heche's ex-husband shares emotional message after her death Watch video Hundreds gather in Southend at a vigil for Archie Battersbee Watch video Horrific moment car mows down four people in Chicago, killing three Watch video Aussie who was held prisoner by Taliban RETURNS to Afghanistan Watch video Tourists and boat owners playfully interact with Freya the Walrus Watch video Moment Salman Rushdie knifeman is tackled by audience members Watch video Emergency workers search River Thames for missing male teenager Watch video See the pets abandoned by owners during cost of living crisis Watch video Lights out!

We're sorry for any inconvenience. We're working to reopen as soon as possible.'A car park close to the supermarket, located in the Inshes Retail Park, was also flooded, as was a nearby Vue cinema.The yellow weather warning is expected to be in place until midnight on Monday. It follows temperatures reaching 30 degrees last week and red water shortage warnings being issued to parts of Fife and the Borders.Pictures taken across the Scottish Highlands showed dark clouds growing as they rolled in, before pouring torrential rain on the area. Droughts have been declared in eight areas and an amber warning for 'extreme heat' remains in place for large parts of the south, east, west, midlands and north of England until midnight.And the Environment Agency has warned that this lack of water could continue into 2023 unless there is higher than average rainfall throughout autumn and winter.Met Officer meteorologist Dan Stroud said that the air is becoming unstable as high pressure dominated the country.'We've had a number of days now where we've had clear, strong, clear skies and strong sunshine which has heated up the ground,' the forecaster said.'We've had high pressure dominating, now we're having low pressure dominate, so the air is becoming more unstable. 'As we've had some very high ground temperatures, it doesn't actually take too much for the air to become even more unstable and for thundery showers to develop quickly.'The mercury could also dip as low as 9C (48F) over the next few days – just weeks after Britain recorded its hottest ever temperature of 40.3C (104.5F).

We're likely to see some heavy and, at times, thundery showers.'He said some places could face nearly two inches of rainfall, adding: 'It's going to be much appreciated by many people.'However, he warned that the country needs an 'average or slightly wetter than average winter' to recover from the dry summer, claiming that any rain this week will serve only as a 'short, sharp shock'.John Curtin, a director at the Environment Agency, said: 'We'll need probably average or slightly above average rainfall this autumn into this winter for us to not be in a drought next year.' It comes after the driest first half of the year since 1976 saw green spaces left parched reservoirs completely dried up.Three water companies – Welsh Water, Southern Water, and South East Water – have imposed hosepipe bans. Yorkshire Water has said it will introduce one on August 26 and Thames Water is also planning a ban in the coming weeks.Ministers are also said to be considering plans for a multi-billion-pound water 'grid' to guard against future droughts. A huge pipeline could be built to link rainy regions of Britain with dry areas amid fears this summer's conditions could become more frequent. more videos 1 2 3 Watch video Anne Heche's ex-husband shares emotional message after her death Watch video Hundreds gather in Southend at a vigil for Archie Battersbee Watch video Horrific moment car mows down four people in Chicago, killing three Watch video Aussie who was held prisoner by Taliban RETURNS to Afghanistan Watch video Tourists and boat owners playfully interact with Freya the Walrus Watch video Moment Salman Rushdie knifeman is tackled by audience members Watch video Emergency workers search River Thames for missing male teenager Watch video See the pets abandoned by owners during cost of living crisis Watch video Lights out!

Wednesday Thursday will be the mid 20s.'So probably today is the last day where we'll see temperatures above 30C for the rest of the week.'Drivers have been urged to drive carefully amid predictions of flash flooding.Simon Williams, RAC's road safety expert, said: 'When roads or conditions have been so dry, flash floods are going to appear and cause a danger to drivers.'There's a risk of aquaplaning as the water won't drain away quite as quickly. The risk of slipping and sliding is also greater.'Make sure you've got good tread on your tyres and they're properly inflated, because the tread is the only thing that keeps you in contact with the road. Also, leave plenty of space between your car and the car in front.'A spokesman for the AA also warned about slippery surfaces on the roads as a result of rubber build-up from tyres.  The sun rises over the countryside in Dunsden, Oxfordshire, on Sunday morning as temperatures are forecast to again soar above 30C Met Officer meteorologist Dan Stroud said the weather will remain dry across the south, with thunderstorms expected in northern areas Hot air balloons fly over fields across the North Somerset landscape early on Sunday morning as parts of the south brace for 33C temperatures The mass ascent this morning forms part of the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta 2022, with clear skies on Sunday providing spectacular views Data collected from more than 18 water companies, including Thames Water, Severn Trent Water, United Utilities and Welsh Water, showed that sites ranging from Oxfordshire and London, to Warwickshire, had no water or poor pressure A picturesque sky in Dunsden, Oxfordshire, on Sunday morning as the UK heatwave goes out with a bang when thunderstorms arrive more videos 1 2 3 Watch video Anne Heche's ex-husband shares emotional message after her death Watch video Hundreds gather in Southend at a vigil for Archie Battersbee Watch video Horrific moment car mows down four people in Chicago, killing three Watch video Aussie who was held prisoner by Taliban RETURNS to Afghanistan Watch video Tourists and boat owners playfully interact with Freya the Walrus Watch video Moment Salman Rushdie knifeman is tackled by audience members Watch video Emergency workers search River Thames for missing male teenager Watch video See the pets abandoned by owners during cost of living crisis Watch video Lights out!

.A helicopter was also been seen flying over the area. Max Taylor, a senior news editor at NBC, was paddle-boarding at Hampton Court Palace when the incident happened, and spoke to eyewitnesses.'They told me a young male in his mid-late teens was swimming in the river near Hampton Court bridge,' he told Sky News.'He called for help and was in waist deep water. They said they thought he was joking as he wasn’t in deep water — seconds later he had disappeared.'I paddled past and saw the inflatable search boats go in and start looking for the young lad — but it must have been a good 10-15 minutes since I spoke to the couple in the boat.' adverts.addToArray({"pos":"mpu_factbox"})Advertisement Meanwhile two people are missing after getting into difficulty in rivers in England during the hot weekend weather.Temperatures soared to 93.2F (34C) on Saturday and Sunday as the spate of sunny and hot weather continued across the UK.Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue service said they received reports at 6:37pm on Sunday of a man missing near the Weir at Stoke Bardolph.Eight crews were sent to find the man and the incident has now been handed over to the police.A search is also under way for a man in the River Thames after he was reported getting into difficulty in the water.The Metropolitan Police said that a 'multi-agency response' was in operation after they received reports of the man in the water at Hampton Court at 4.12pm on Sunday.A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: 'Officers from the Met and Surrey Police, the National Police Air Service, as well as the London Fire Brigade, London Ambulance Service and RNLI, began searching the river.'However, despite the best efforts of everyone involved the man has not been found.'Efforts to inform all of his next of kin are ongoing while work to recover the man continues.'The Met Office said Charlwood in Surrey, south west England, recorded the highest temperature at 34.9C on Sunday.An official drought was declared in eight areas of England on Friday by the National Drought Group (NDG), which comprises representatives from the Government, water companies, the Environment Agency (EA) and others.Three water companies — Welsh Water, Southern Water, and South East Water — have all imposed hosepipe bans, while Yorkshire Water has announced a ban will start on August 26 and Thames Water is planning one in the coming weeks.And Cornwall will be joining the other regions, with its first ban in 27 years.South West Water is planning the hosepipe restriction in Cornwall and part of north-west Devon — resulting in around eight million people living under a ban.Mr Stroud said that despite the forecast of intense showers over the next few days, it is unlikely to help the drought.'It will help a little but to be honest really, it's almost the wrong sort of rain,' he said.'What we're likely to see is some heavy, intense downpours. With the ground baked so dry, it's very difficult for the ground to actually absorb the water very quickly.'So what tends to happen in these circumstances is the water runs off and we can potentially get some surface run-off issues, so some flash floods.'It comes after a body was found in a Doncaster lake on Saturday after emergency services rushed to reports that a man in his 20s had got into difficulty in water.Emergency services were called to Lakeside lake at around 4.10pm yesterday, according to South Yorkshire Police.Little over two hours later, a teenage boy went missing in the sea at Skegness.Emergency services rushed to reports that 'a child under 16' was in the water at around 6.15pm on Saturday.A search was carried out by police officers and the coastguard, before the boy's body was tragically recovered at around 11.30pm last night.Elsewhere, searing temperatures this week have already central reservation barriers along a stretch of the A63 in Yorkshire to buckle.Pictures taken on Thursday from the Water Lane Bridge, in South Cave, show stretches of the ordinarily straight barriers with large kinks and bends.The barriers were installed on the dual carriageway earlier during the winter between junction 38 of the M62 and South Cave.A spokesperson for National highways told the BBC that the buckling may have been caused by ground conditions, but added that the heatwave was 'not being ruled out'. Network Rail has advised passengers to check journeys are running but has reassured them there are no major disruptions expected. The hot weather has already seen several wildfires erupt across England, with the latest blaze breaking out in the North York Moors National Park.North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said they were called to the blaze on Saturday evening shortly after 6pm in Sutton Bank and firefighters worked through the night to dampen down the grass to prevent further spread.There have been 150 wildfires in the past week alone.More than 90 firefighters tackled a blaze on the Studland peninsula in Purbeck, Dorset, this weekend, which was believed to have been caused by a barbeque.The weather warning means heat-related illnesses including sunburn and heat exhaustion are 'likely' among the general population, while delays to public transport are also 'possible'.Mr Stroud has said there remains a risk of further wildfires, too.He added: 'It has been extremely dry for an extended period and the ground and vegetation has been baked dry, so there is a significant risk.'An official drought was declared in eight areas of England on Friday by the National Drought Group (NDG), which comprises representatives from the Government, water companies, the Environment Agency (EA) and others.And the drought could persist into next year, the EA has said.Jersey Water urged residents not to use hosepipes and sprinklers after the island, some 85 miles south of the English coast, reached its second 'absolute drought' of 2022 after more than 15 days without rain on August 5.
