Weather Warning for Thunderstorms

Alert message sent 09/08/2020 18:36:00

Information sent on behalf of Scottish Borders Council

Dear Citizen
The Met Office have issued a 'Yellow Weather Warning for Thunderstorms' on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday. SEPA have also issued a general flood alert for the Scottish Borders area, and we will update you on each day with any information that we receive from the Met Office.
Jim Fraser

Details for Monday
Heavy, thundery showers will develop across southern parts of the UK and migrate northwards during the day. These could occur across the very far south of Scotland during the morning before drifting northwards across the rest of Scotland during the afternoon & evening.
These showers could bring torrential downpours, lightning and gusty winds. This could bring quite rapid flooding in some places as well as disruption to transport and utilities.
These showers will be quite localised and not everywhere in the warning area will see them. The warning aims to highlight an ‘area at risk’ and shouldn’t be taken too literally.

Tuesday & Wednesday
The risk of severe storms carries on overnight in to Tuesday so the warning for Tuesday remains valid from midnight and lasts through the day. A similar broad warning has been added for Wednesday.
