The severe storms cleared into the North Sea early on Thursday morning, although there remains a risk of isolated thundery showers developing on Thursday.

The storms formed across France during the afternoon and steadily headed north, crossing the English Channel. They hit the south coast, dropping torrential rain, during the early evening.
