UK weather: Hail and thunderstorms to batter Britain today after Storm Noa chaos brought 96mph winds | The Sun

HAIL and thunderstorms are expected to batter Britain today after Storm Noa brought 96mph winds.

The Met Office is predicting an unsettled day with some heavy showers sweeping in across northern areas following days of storm chaos.

A band of heavy rain is still swirling around the North and Scotland, which could lead to wet and windy conditions today.

The Met's daily forecast predicts "showers in the North, some heavy with hail and thunder".

These are set to be mixed in with sunnier spells, while southern areas are set to see brighter weather despite some "isolated showers".

Storm Noa, named by French forecaster Météo-France, is seemingly beginning to ease off after it brought high winds and heavy rain sweeping across the UK.
