There was also costal flooding in west kirby and Liverpool with the Met Office saying that there will be similar weather on Thursday.

Their forecast reads: “Cold, windy and unsettled with showers, including a longer spell of rain.

“Showers at times heavy with a risk of hail and thunder, and perhaps wintry over hills by evening”

This is all down to the Jet stream changing position and allowing northerly winds to dominate our weather.

On Thursday the region could see cold strong winds of up to 40mph with rain, as we head towards the weekend it will be often windy with sunshine and blustery showers which could turn heavy.
