UPDATE: The Met Office has now cancelled one of its weather warnings

A 'danger to life' weather warning issued yesterday has been updated by the Met Office warning of three days of severe thunderstorms across Scotland.

The Met Office's Yellow alert indicates Scotland is likely to see severe thunderstorms from Monday to Wednesday next week, with chances of flooding, lightning strikes and large hail.

The forecasters admit some 'uncertainty' regarding the exact locations and timings of the thunderstorms, but have applied the weather warning to the whole country for the duration of the period. 


The Met Office say there is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, adding there could be a potential "danger to life" as a result of fast flowing or deep flood water.
