The Met Office has extended its severe weather warning ahead of huge downpours which is set to hit North Somerset this week.

It had put a warning out for tomorrow (Wednesday), as reported yesterday (Monday) by the Mercury, but has now issued a second warning for Thursday too.

It means that people are advised to take extra care from 10am-9pm tomorrow and on Thursday from 10am-10pm.

The Met Office says flooding could strike more urban areas, adding: “Scattered heavy showers are expected to develop yet again on Thursday, and will lead to slow-moving downpours.

“As on preceding days some locations will miss these downpours, but please be aware of possible localised flooding and disruption to travel where they do occur. Lightning could be an additional hazard.”
