Northern Ireland weather warning extended to Monday as thunderstorms expected

The Met Office have extended the yellow weather warning for Northern Ireland to Monday and warned that thunderstorms may be on the way.

A yellow weather warning had been issued for Friday and Saturday with the north of the country taking the brunt of the weather with a Magherafelt shopping centre being completely flooded.

The warning will be in place between 1pm and 8pm.

"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," a Met Office spokesperson said.

"Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

"Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services.

"There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost."
