Met Office thunderstorm warning for Hampshire and Wembley Stadium

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for thunderstorms from 10am until 7pm tonight with heavy rain expected.

While Southampton is just outside of the boundary for the warning, large swathes of Hampshire, including Romsey and Winchester, will be affected.

Saints fans travelling to London today for the Championship playoff final could also be hit with thunder and lightning as Wembley Stadium is also included in the warning zone.

The weather warning comes as much of Hampshire and Southampton is set for a wet and dreary week from Monday.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: “Heavy showers and thunderstorms may cause some disruption in places.

“There is a good chance driving conditions will be affected by spray and standing water, leading to longer journey times by car and bus.

“A small chance of a short term loss of power and some damage to a few buildings and structures from lightning strikes.”
