Weather warning for heavy rain issued for Burnham area this week

Residents in the Burnham-On-Sea area have been warned to expect heavy rain on Thursday and Friday this week.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for disruptive weather as a developing area of rain is expected to reach the south of England early on Thursday morning, before pushing north across much of southern UK during the day.

"The rainfall is likely to be heavy and thundery at times, with the potential for torrential downpours in places," says the Met Office.

"The public should be aware of a significant risk of very localised disruption to travel due to surface water flooding. Lightning may be an additional hazard."

The Chief Forecaster added: "With very warm air entrained into the system, locally heavy and thundery rain is likely to develop as the system pushes across parts of England and Wales. 15 to 30 mm of rain is possible in in 6 to 12 hours, with as much as 50 mm possible very locally by the end of Thursday."

"The development of this system is very complex, and uncertainty in the details of this event is relatively high."
