The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning saying heavy downpours could see 20 to 30 mm of rain in an hour.
They say Monday morning's showers will become more widespread and often heavy and thundery by the afternoon with some locations seeing lightning, hail and strong gusts.
Many areas may miss the downpours and stay largely dry, however. The showers will ease by late evening.
What to expect
- There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings.
- 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
- There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost
