Flooding is expected in parts of England after heavy rain and thunderstorms.

Nearly half a month of rain fell near Sheffield in an hour on Sunday and most of England was on a Met Office warning for rain or thunderstorms until the end of the day.

Between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m., 35.6 mm of rain fell at Woodhouse Mill. There are an average of 12 rainy days in the UK in June, for a total of 77mm.

As of 8pm, six flood warnings have been put in place across parts of northern England.

Met Office forecaster Marco Petanga said: “In one place half a month of rain has fallen in one hour, in some places we are seeing 15 to 20mm, even 30mm in one hour.”

“There have been quite a number of storms in that area of ​​northern England and Northern Ireland and one or two in parts of Wales.”

“It’s quite torrential, 25-35mm in an hour will certainly cause some flooding issues and bad conditions can still be in store.”

Heavy rain has caused disruption across the country with the first Ashes Test at Edgabston being suspended due to the wet weather.
