London could be in for a possible tornado as the Tornado & Storm Research Organisation (TORRO) has issued a warning for much of the area.

TORRO has shared that wind gusts of 50mph to 70mph could be possible, alongside isolated tornadoes.

Additionally, people could have to contend with occasional lightning and hail.

The affected areas range from central and eastern Wales, the Midlands, South West England, the Channel Islands and parts of Central South England, including London.

London issued a tornado warning 

Discussing the potential tornado TORRO shared: "An area of low pressure will move NNE to the west of the area today. To the east of this, a slightly unstable airmass will be present.

"Several bands of showery rain are expected to move NNE across the discussion area, and lightning is already present within this to the south of SW England.

"Strong deep-layer shear coupled with upper forcing will likely cause the precipitation to align into lines. Strong low-level shear will be present too."

They added: "Heavier cores within the lines will be able to mix-down stronger flow from just above the boundary layer, bringing the risk of gusts of 50-60mph, perhaps locally 70mph in the most extreme cases. Hail is possible in the stronger cores too, as well as a few CG lightning strikes.

"Finally, whilst the overall tornado threat is low, given the linear nature of much of the activity, there is a low-end chance of one or two developing, especially within a core of stronger 850 hPa flow, from parts of SW England into Cent S England and the southern Midlands."

While TORRO has issued a tornado warning, the Met Office forecasted strong winds with highs of 46mph and lows of 31mph.

The Met Office added: "some brighter spells for a time. Increasingly breezy and mostly cloudy into the afternoon, however, with showers spreading north and some very strong winds, particularly along the coast."
