Met Office updates weather alerts as heavy rain heads to Burnham area

The Met Office has updated its weather warnings for the Burnham-On-Sea area as a belt of heavy rain is set to sweep in.

The 'Yellow Alert' issued for today (Thursday) now only affects the far south west - not the Burnham area.

However, warnings continue to be in effect for our area on Friday and Saturday as the remnants of a former tropical storm are expected to head across the south west.

"There is the potential for periods of heavy rain during the 36 hours from Thursday evening until Saturday morning," says the Met Office. "However, there remains considerable uncertainty in the northward extent of this heavy rain and the area covered by the alert is likely to be adjusted as the event approaches."

"The public should be aware of the possibility of disruption to travel due to localised flooding."

Last week, several areas around Burnham including Brean (above) were flooded after heavy rain.
