The Met Office has issued a weather warning today for heavy showers which are likely to be slow-moving in nature, allowing some locally high rainfall accumulations to build-up from torrential downpours.

 



Very locally 15 to 20 mm rain could fall in an hour and 20 to 30 mm could fall in two or three hours. Most places will miss the worst of the showers though.

In contrast to the usual chain of events giving heavy showers and torrential downpours during the summer half of the year, the heaviest showers are likely during the mid to late morning and first half of this afternoon.

Meanwhile, whilst thunder and lightning may accompany some showers, this is likely to be isolated in nature.

The chief forecaster at the Met Office said: "Very locally 15 to 20 mm rain could fall in an hour and 20 to 30 mm could fall in two or three hours. Most places will miss the worst of the showers though.

"In contrast to the usual chain of events giving heavy showers and torrential downpours during the summer half of the year, the heaviest showers are likely during the mid to late morning and first half of this afternoon. Meanwhile, whilst thunder and lightning may accompany some showers, this is likely to be isolated in nature."
