IF you live in Bridgwater - brace yourself for a possible thunder and lightning storm later on this afternoon (Thursday, October 26).

The Met Office is forecasting a 50 per cent chance of the heavens opening and some flashes and bangs in the county town at around 5pm.

Maybe get the cat in and make sure it can get under the sofa around that time - just in case the worst materialises.

But don't worry too much as the Met Office predicts we're in for a largely sunny day with the possibility of only occasional showers.

Temperatures are likely to peak at around 15 degs C into the afternoon.
