It may be sunny today (Wednesday) but the Met Office is warning of stormy weather on the way for North Devon.

Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts - because rain is set to be on the way for North Devon on Friday.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning across the region with isolated thunderstorms and heavy rain expected.

The warning lasts from midday on Friday until 7am on Saturday.

A chief forecaster said: “Whilst isolated thunderstorms are possible from Thursday, these become more likely and potentially more severe by Friday afternoon, with the potential for 20 to 30mm falling within an hour or so, probably on a very localised basis.

“Indications are that a more organised band of heavy rain and thunderstorms will follow by Friday evening and overnight into Saturday, bringing 25 to 50 mm of rain more widely, again with the potential for some very high short-period totals.

“Given the complexity of the developments leading up to this event, ideas on areas at greatest risk of heavy rainfall and severe thunderstorms may well change, and this warning will be updated accordingly.”
