THUNDERSTORMS are set to hit Worcestershire.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms covering large parts of the county.

Worcester, Evesham and Droitwich are among the areas set to be affected between 1pm and 8pm.

Heavy showers may cause flooding and disruption.

The Met Office has warned motorists to expect driving conditions to be affected by spray, standing water, and possibly hail, leading to longer journey times by car and bus.

There is also the possibility that homes and businesses may be flooded, leading to damage to some structures.

Train services may also be delayed.


Meanwhile, lightning strikes will "probably" damage buildings.
