Periods of rain are expected to become widespread, persistent and locally heavy across parts of England and Wales through Thursday. Rainfall totals of 15-25mm are likely widely with the potential for some spots to see spots potentially seeing totals of 40-60mm.
Please note: Higher totals look most likely over parts of outside of the Anglia region (Bristol, Bath and Northeast Somerset, Wiltshire and into South Gloucestershire).
The ground is already saturated from rainfall over the previous few weeks and so the small amounts of rainfall can lead to some impacts. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated as it happens.
