Weather: Warm but with downpours and thunder

A soaking for most of us at some point today, the UK is to experience intense, prolonged downpours with thunder as well as possible hail in places.

A lucky few will have some sunshine, albeit limited and hazy.

The weather will be warm for most us, muggy and close feeling in places.

The thundery downpours will catch a few of us out by this evening's rush hour.
