Thunder and lightning could strike as a wet weather warning is put in place for Cheshire West and Chester for the third day in a row.

It could get wet and wild throughout Tuesday (June 14) with the potential for 15 to 25mm of water to fall in the space of an hour.

Forecasters had already predicted downpours leading to the possibility of localised flooding on Sunday and Monday.

But Chester and Ellesmere Port seem to have avoided the worst of it since earlier deluges on June 10-11.

The Met Office also has yellow warnings scheduled for the borough on Wednesday and Thursday.

A Met Office statement said: “Heavy showers, which continued in some areas overnight, will develop more widely again today.

“Some will become thundery, leading to slow-moving downpours across the warning area.

“Some locations will miss these but where they do occur, please be aware of possible localised flooding and disruption to travel. Lightning could be an additional hazard.”

Both Ellesmere Port and Saltney suffered due to flooding last week with roads blocked off due to pools of water.
