Thundery showers are predicted to intially hit the North West on Monday morning and develop through the day, with a risk of hail and lightning in the region too.

A series of flood warnings are also in place across the country as the parched ground struggles to cope with the sudden downpour.

However, a flood warning for the Mersey Estuary at Warrington was downgraded and removed by the Environment Agency at around 9.30am this morning. There are currently no other flood warnings in place for the region.

The yellow weather warning for thunderstorms in Liverpool is scheduled to be in place until midnight on Tuesday.
