UK weather for the South-coast forecast: The Met Office have issued a Yellow THUNDER STORM warning.
The Met Office has predicted a sweltering weekend for many, as the country bathes in wall-to-wall sunshine.
The heat has been both a blessing and a curse this summer, with people enjoying the heat, but high pollen count set to cause chaos for hay fever sufferers.
Unrelenting sun has also brought warped train tracks and a melting roads in some places in the UK.
While much of the country is set to keep enjoying the weather, the Met Office has also predicted thunder storms and torrential rain in their first yellow warning that comes into force on the 5th July at around 12pm and remains in force covering the mapped area until 7pm.
Heavy showers and thunderstorms are likely to break out this afternoon before fading away by early evening. 20-30 mm of rain in an hour is possible in a few places, leading to surface water flooding, whilst there is a chance of one or two impacts from lightning and hail.
