North Wales is set to be hit by thunderstorms on Thursday as the Met Office issue a yellow weather warning.

Although we are enjoying warm weather today, the Met Office says there is a good chance of thunderstorms down the west side of the UK, including all of Wales and the North West of England, on Thursday and Friday this week.

The warning says: "Whilst many places will be dry or see little rain, thunderstorms may cause flooding and disruption in a few places."

Storms are expected from 4pm tomorrow (June 25) and the warning continues until 9am on Friday.

The warning says: "Heavy showers and thunderstorms are likely to break out on Friday afternoon and evening. Many places will miss the storms, but where they do occur, torrential downpours could bring 30-50mm rain in a hour, with hail and lightning."

The Met Office warning says people should expect:

  • There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds
  • 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 small chance that some communities become cut off by flooded roads
  • There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost
