Heatwave in Newark and Sherwood to come to an end as Met Office issues weather warning for thunderstorms
The heatwave we are currently experiencing could be brought to an end by thunderstorms.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for the county which is in place from noon on Friday until 6am Saturday.
Across the area people have been basking in temperatures in the high 20s and the forecast predicts they'll rise above 30 today and tomorrow.
But now the nation's weather service is predicting thunderstorms are set to hit parts of the county including the East Midlands, bringing the sunshine to an abrupt end.
It said 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.
There could be a direct impact on roads and public transport with delays likely to train and bus services.
There is also a small chance some communities may be cut off by flooded roads and power cuts could occur.
