Met Office weather alert for thunderstorms in east London
The weather for next week will be mixed for east London, starting with thunderstorms expected tomorrow.
The thunderstorms – which should arrive on Saturday July 3 – will bring temperatures of 22 ° C, the hottest expected over the next few days.
This turbulent weather is unlikely to be welcomed by residents still recovering after a “tornado” hit Barking last Friday.
Families in Gidea Park were among those hit hard by the tornado, which recorded more than 40mm of rainfall per hour in some places.
While such severe conditions are not expected this week, the expected thunder has prompted the Met Office to issue a yellow weather warning for tomorrow.
That’s bad news for those hoping to celebrate National BBQ Week a little earlier.
The weather may also force football fans to rethink their plans to watch England vs Ukraine away from home.
Sunday and Monday are expected to be dominated by clouds and light rain, before the sun finally rises on Tuesday.

By Wednesday (July 7), temperatures are expected to rise to around 20 ° C, which should increase by one degree the next day.
Light showers are forecast for both days, despite reasonably warm temperatures.
