Weather warnings remain in place for thunderstorms across Teesside through Monday afternoon and evening.
A yellow Met Office warning will be in place until midnight tonight, Monday, for heavy rain and thunderstorms which could lead to flooding and travel disruption.
The worst of the rain is likely to sweep through mid to late afternoon but the chance of showers is set to decrease in to the evening, says the forecast for our area.
The thunderstorm warning has been lifted for Tuesday but it looks like Teesside is in for another wet day with heavy rain and a moderate breeze on the cards.
A yellow warning is the least severe of the Met Office’s indicators, followed by amber and red which are usually reserved for snow, ice and fog.
It says: “Heavy rain and thunderstorms may lead to flooding and disruption to travel. There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds.
“Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.”
