HEAVY rain and thunderstorms will hit Swindon tonight and into tomorrow.

Forecasters have issued a Yellow weather warning for rain, as swathes of southern England and Wales suffer miserable bank holiday weather.

The Met Office predicts there will be showers later this morning and into the evening. Thunderstorms are due to strike late on Sunday afternoon.

However, the weather is expected to be warm. Temperatures will hit highs of 22C this weekend, before dropping down to 19C by Tuesday.
