Information sent on behalf of Scottish Borders Council

Dear Citizen
Yellow Weather Warning - Thunderstorms- Friday 26th June 
Heavy showers and thunderstorms are likely to break out on Friday afternoon and evening.  Many places will miss the storms, but where they do occur, torrential downpours could bring 30-50mm rain in a hour, with hail and lightning, and may cause Surface Water issues.
The storms will slowly clear northeastwards on Friday night, perhaps not clearing northeast  Scotland until Saturday morning.
  • There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds
  • Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services
  • Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures
  • There is a small chance that some communities become cut off by flooded roads
  • There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost.
Valid from 12:00 on Friday, 26 June 2020 until 06:00 on Saturday, 27 June 2020
