‘However, some places could see 30 mm in an hour and 60mm in 6 hours, with the potential for frequent lightning, strong winds and hail.

‘Where this occurs there is likely to be some disruption.

‘While there is a high likelihood that thunderstorms will develop over England and Wales, there remains a large amount of uncertainty in exactly where these develop.

‘This uncertainty is likely to remain even up to short lead times.’
