Wet start to Wednesday. Improving later from the west.

Wednesday starts wet for all, some heavy bursts of rain around, but as the band of rain continues NE'wards the rain on it becomes lighter and patchier, it runs out of steam.

So by Wednesday afternoon the East of the region will see cloud and showers. In the West it will mostly be turning dry, but still the risk of isolated showers. Brightening from the west behind the showers, tops 17-18c, 64f. Less breezy than Tuesday.

Thursday starts dry, but there is a weather warning for heavy, thundery rain to pull up from the south later. 15-20mm precipitation is widely expected, but in the heavier showers 20mm an hour is anticipated with 30-50mm possible during the day. Localised flooding is therefore possible.
