Weather: Thunderstorm to hit Brighton amid yellow warning Brighton News

Heavy rain and thunderstorms are expected to hit the county today, as the Met Office issues a yellow weather warning for 24 hours.

Homes and businesses in Sussex could be flooded “quickly” as a downpour of rain is expected to last until Saturday morning.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms, with delays in expected train and bus services.

According to forecasts, there is a small chance that some communities will be isolated by flooded roads.

There is also a “slight chance” that power outages will occur and other services in some homes and businesses will be lost.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: “Episodes of heavy rain can cause travel disruptions and flooding.

“For some, rain can be accompanied by thunder and lightning.

“There is a slight chance that power outages could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost.

“There is a small chance that fast flowing or deep flood water is life threatening.”

The forecast thunderstorms come just days after Brighton and Hove hit temperatures reaching nearly 30C.

Those who wish to soak up the sun have found a rare spot on the pebble beach, many of which braved the sea to cool off from roasting temperatures.
