Thunderstorms have been predicted for Weston-super-Mare and North Somerset later this week.

The Met Office is warning people to be prepared for thundery showers on Tuesday and Wednesday, and has issued a yellow weather alert.

The heavy showers are expected to push north across the South West on Tuesday evening.

A Met Office spokesman said: “Although many places won’t see these showers, there is a chance of localised flooding of homes, businesses and susceptible roads.

“Frequent lightning may be an additional hazard with potential disruption to power networks. Similarly, but very locally, hail may cause impacts.”

The warning remains in place from midnight to 8pm on Wednesday, and ‘severe storms’ could break out across the South West in the afternoon.
