On Thursday 6 of July and into the early hours of Friday 7th July, there is the potential for localised and very heavy thunderstorms to affect widely scattered localities across North Yorkshire. It is not possible to predict the precise location of these thunderstorms, but where they occur there’s a risk of localised flooding of roads, homes and businesses. The potential for very heavy rain, and the uncertainty over where it will fall means that we are taking the precautionary measure of issuing a flood alert. In anticipation of these thunderstorms our staff are monitoring the situation, and our field teams are working with partners to ensure that defences are clear of obstructions.
