Stormy weather and hail have been forecast for North Somerset with weather experts issuing a yellow warning.
Thunderstorms are predicted to break out in the district through Tuesday evening, and a warning is in place from 5pm to midnight.
A Met Office spokesman said: “Although many places won’t see these showers, there is a chance of localised flooding of homes, businesses and susceptible roads.
“Frequent lightning may be an additional hazard with potential disruption to power networks. Similarly, but very locally, hail may cause impacts.”
The yellow warning will remain in place throughout Wednesday, and it is predicted the storms will ease off by 8pm.
