THUNDERSTORMS are set to hit Swindon tonight.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning which will be in place from 7pm tonight to 3am on Thursday.

A spokesman said: "Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.

"Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services, as well as possible power cuts.

"There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, with damage due to floodwater or lightning strikes."
