MET Office has warned that thunderstorms and torrential downpours may cause travel disruption and, in a few places, flooding on the Isle of Wight tomorrow (Thursday).

A yellow weather warning for thunderstorms has been put in place between 10am and 11.59pm tomorrow.

According to the Met Office, there is a small chance that homes and businesses could flood quickly, with damage to some buildings from flood water, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds.

Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to Island travel.

Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost.

The Met Office said: "Thunderstorms are likely to break out in some areas, particularly during the afternoon and early evening.

"While most places will probably miss them, where thunderstorms do occur there is a chance that in a few places up to 40mm of rain could fall in an hour or so and 40 to 60mm could fall in two or three hours.

"These torrential downpours may be accompanied by frequent lightning, whilst gusty winds and hail may also affect a few places."
