“This will lead to surface water flooding particularly if the heaviest rain occurs over larger towns and cities.”

A second yellow warning encompassing the whole of the south, from Devon and Cornwall up to London and Kent has also been issued.

The yellow warning reads: “An area of heavy rain reaching southwest England late Wednesday afternoon spreads eastwards across southern England, reaching the far southeast of England by mid-evening.

“Rain will last for around six hours in any location, finally clearing southeast England during the early hours of Thursday.

“Rain may be accompanied by coastal gales and, in a few places, thunder. 15 to 25 mm of rain is widely expected with 30 to 50 mm possible in a few places.”
