Scattered slow-moving heavy, thundery downpours are expected to develop across the area Sunday and Monday, with some places missing the worst of the downpours altogether.

A forecaster at the Met Office has said: “A complex frontal system will maintain relatively warm and humid conditions across much of the area.

“Where any sunshine breaks through, rising temperatures will help trigger scattered heavy downpours, with local thunder, which could be slow-moving, given light winds. 15-20 mm of rain could fall locally within an hour with 30-40 mm possible within a few hours.

“Such amounts could cause localised surface water flooding, especially if they affect urban areas”.
