Commuters in Mid Wales have been told to brace themselves for travel disruption later today - as a band of thunderstorms rolls through the region during Friday rush hour.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms that could hit parts of Powys this afternoon, as the aftermath of Storm Miguel makes it's way up the country from the South.

Heavy thundery showers are possible, as well as potential travel disruption, with spray and flooding on roads potentially affecting journey times as well as public transport services.

The Met Office says: "Whilst some places will escape them, some heavy showers will break out during Friday afternoon and evening.

"Some of these showers will be quite prolonged, with a chance of occasional thunder.

"A few places may see 20mm rain falling within an hour and some spots may receive around 30mm rain in a couple of hours.

"Following a spell of rain earlier in the day, this may lead to spray and surface water flooding on some roads."

The yellow warning is in place between 2pm and 11pm (June 7) when Storm Miguel is set to take its toll.

Weekend outlook

It looks as though the rain may be here to stay, with fresh showers moving in over the weekend.

According to the Met Office, Saturday is set to be a breezy and cloudy day again, with some patchy rain at times. Through the afternoon, some sunny spells will likely feed in from the south at times, as winds ease a little.

"Sunday will feel a little warmer than Saturday with spells of sunshine and easing winds but scattered showers will develop. On Sunday night, any showers will become isolated, leaving it mainly dry and cool," the forecast says

"On Monday, there could some showers or more persistent and heavy rain later."
