Met Office gives exact time thunderstorms will hit Bristol before 11-hour weather warning

The Met Office has predicted the exact time thunderstorms are set to hit Bristol ahead of an 11-hour weather warning this weekend. As of 7am on Sunday 17 September, the forecaster has issued a yellow warning for thunder and lightning, with heavy rain expected across the south-west and parts of Wales.

Local residents have been warned of the possibility of flooding and deep, fast-flowing water that could cause a “life risk”, with difficult and potentially dangerous driving conditions on roads in the area. Some communities may be isolated by flooded roads, while others may face power outages and loss of services.

The warning is in effect from 7am on Sunday to 6pm that afternoon. Involving most of the south-west, from Penzance to parts of Gloucestershire, Bristol is also expected to experience heavy rain and thunder in the early afternoon.
