Thunderstorms are set to hit the UK tonight and tomorrow, before evolving into heavy rain and wind on Sunday.

The odd thunderstorm is expected over the Pennines today and although other areas of the north-west are set to see more heavy rain than thunder, yellow weather warnings are continuing to expand across the country.

Both Saturday and Sunday will see a change in weather in Blackpool with duller skies and wet weather replacing bright, clear skies.
