HEAVY, thundery rain is expected to hit the Isle of Wight on Saturday, according to the Met Office.

It has issued a yellow 'be aware' warning, for the Island and most of England, Wales and southern Scotland.

The chief forecaster said: "Warm, humid air is likely to be pulled northwards from France late on Friday and during Saturday. Within this air mass, there is an increasing likelihood that heavy, thundery showers will break out. It is likely that many places within the current broad warning area will miss the worst of the storms; over the next few days it may be possible to focus on the areas most at risk."
