The Met Office says there is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, with damage to some buildings from water, lightning strikes or hail.

Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services.

Spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures and there is a small chance that some communities could become cut off by flooded roads.

There is also a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost.

The Met Office explains a good rule of thumb is "if it’s time for your wipers, it’s time to slow down" when driving.
