Cloudy and wet for most of us throughout the rest of today, with the heaviest rain through the eastern side of the country. So there are some heavier pulses of rain around, largely through the East Midlands with thunder possible here and there. This won't be especially widespread though.

There is a weather warning in place until 9pm for outbreaks of heavy, showery rain, especially in the east, some of that proving heavy at times, sometimes torrential. The East Midlands can expect 10-20mm rainfall from the heavier showers, maybe as much as 40mm from the more torrential downpours. Drier to the W/SW of the region around Herefordshire. Tops 19c 66f, and feeling humid.

Tonight, the torrential showers continue further east but into the early hours the rain starts to ease to showery outbreaks by the end of the night. Lows 11-13c.
