Heavy rain and thunderstorms are set to batter Weston-super-Mare and wider North Somerset this weekend.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for rain from 6am tomorrow (Saturday) to 23.59pm on Sunday.

The weather expert said: “Very warm and humid conditions will lead to thunderstorms developing across parts of Southern England, the South and West Midlands and Wales on both Saturday and Sunday.

“Thunderstorms will produce torrential rain and hail in places with up to 30mm falling in an hour, while some places may miss the worst of the heavy rain.

“There is a small chance homes and businesses could be flooded quickly with damage to some buildings from flood water.

“Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services.

“Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost.”
