Due to the convective nature of the rain, some locations in the shaded area may get away with lighter showers and smaller amounts of rainfall.

15-20mm precipitation is widely expected, but in the heavier showers 20mm an hour is anticipated with 30-50mm possible during the day.

This warning will be updated during Wednesday morning.
