These storms are expected to develop across southern areas and the midlands on Thursday from 1pm until 9pm.

These storms will be isolated so not everywhere will get them but they are likely to be quite severe.

The warning says: ”Thunderstorms are likely to break out during the afternoon and early evening. While most places will probably miss them, where thunderstorms do occur there is a chance that in a few places up to 40 to 60mm of rain could fall in 1-2 hours.”

”These torrential downpours may be accompanied by frequent lightning, whilst gusty winds and large hail may also affect a few places.”

”The exact location of the thunderstorms will be hard to pinpoint, so the warning area will be kept under review and updated if necessary.”
