According to the Met Office, these thunderstorms may result in torrential downpours, posing significant travel disruptions and a potential risk of flash floods.

Residents should anticipate spray and sudden flooding, leading to difficult driving conditions and potential road closures.

Some communities could become isolated by flooded roads, and there is a slight chance of power cuts affecting homes and businesses.

The Met Office also cautions about the risk of fast-flowing or deep floodwater, which could endanger lives.

Driving during thunderstorms should be avoided if possible. If you must drive, slow down, use main roads, and maintain a larger gap between vehicles.
