Doncaster will likely see thunderstorms by mid afternoon today with heavy showers arriving to break the heatwave.

A yellow weather warning is in place for much of England today (August 15) due to moderate chances of thunderstorms and a small risk of flash floods.

According to the Met Office, there will be hit-and-miss thunderstorms likely to develop through Monday, producing some torrential downpours for some spots, and possible disruption.

Finally, a break in the weather

Rain will be patchy but heavy between 2pm and 5pm, before drying up for the rest of the evening with hazy, clouded over skies and a breeze of up to 15mph.

The rain will also mark a noticeable cooling in temperatures, as the ongoing heatwave of 25C+ will drop down to a more manageable 22C, around 19C on Tuesday.

The weather warning is in place for flash floods as dry ground after hot weather has difficulty absorbing water, which could lead to run offs during the heavy showers.
