Watch out Wilmslow: there's a Yellow Weather Warning this weekend.

Thunderstorms are likely in Wilmslow for one day this weekend.

Friday is okay - so you don't have to cancel your plans - but Saturday afternoon may be a write off.

A thunderstorm is set for 4pm-5pm on Saturday.

However, this brief bit of extreme weather pales in comparison to our Cheshire neighbours who may have the storm for as much as three hours.

The Met Office forecast states: "Many places missing the worst, but heavy showers and thunderstorms may cause some transport disruption and perhaps flooding."

"There is a good chance driving conditions will be affected by spray, standing water and/or hail, leading to longer journey times by car and bus."

"Delays to train services are possible

Some short term loss of power and other services is possible, with possible damage due to lightning strikes." "Flooding of a few homes and businesses could occur."
