The Met Office has issued an updated warning for thunder and rain across the region today and on Sunday.
The warning is in place from 2 pm until 10 pm on Saturday 10 June and 12 noon to 9 pm on Sunday.
A spokesperson said:
‘High temperatures across parts of England and Wales on Saturday are expected to trigger a scattering of showers and thunderstorms, perhaps with the focus towards the west of the warning area.
‘Some of these storms could produce torrential downpours, bringing 30-40 mm in an hour, while one or two spots affected by multiple showers could see in excess of 60 mm across a few hours. Hail, strong gusts of wind, and lightning will be possible additional hazards.
‘Despite this, some places in the warning area will remain dry, or see little rain, due to the scattered nature of the heaviest showers.’
