Sunny and warmer weather may have returned to Somerset this week, but it's not going to last.

The Met Office has just issued another severe weather warning for the county as torrential rain is forecast to hit the region on Thursday morning.

The yellow warning is in place from midnight until midday on Thursday, and the Met Office is warning people to beware of localised flooding and extremely hazardous driving conditions.

"Heavy rain is expected to spread north-eastwards during Thursday across parts of southern England and South Wales, with torrential downpours and thunderstorms possible in places," said the Met Office.

"The public should be aware of large amounts of spray on roads and, in some places, minor flooding."

In the meantime, it is forecast to remain mainly dry and bright, with just a few light showers possible over higher ground.

However it will start to cloud over on Wednesday afternoon, ahead of the torrential rain forecast for Thursday.
