PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A thunderstorm warning has been issued by the Met Office for much of southern England and Wales on Thursday. Forecasters have put a yellow alert in place between 10am and 11.59pm with torrential downpours expected. The Met Office said there was a small chance homes and businesses could be flooded as well as a small chance of fast flowing floodwater causing danger to life. Flooding could also cause some road closures, with heavy traffic on the roads already expected around the UK due to rail strikes. Large parts of Wales, including Cardiff and Swansea, will also be hit with mainly coastal areas escaping the worst conditions. The bad weather is expected to impact much of England from the south coast to Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds further north. The Met Office alert stated: "Thunderstorms are likely to break out in some areas, particularly during the afternoon and early evening. While most places will probably miss them, where thunderstorms do occur there is a chance that in a few places up to 40 mm of rain could fall in an hour or so and 40 to 60 mm could fall in two or three hours. "These torrential downpours may be accompanied by frequent lightning, whilst gusty winds and hail may also affect a few places. The exact location of the thunderstorms will be hard to pinpoint, so the warning area will be kept under review and updated if necessary." The area covered by the yellow weather warning Forecaster Brian Gaze, of The Weather Outlook, added: "Tomorrow starts with widespread sunny periods and temperatures quickly rise.
