Weather: A mixed day

Today will be mostly cloudy, with limited bright spells.

Some light and patchy rain and drizzle is also likely as we head into the afternoon, and it will feel humid.

Showers will become more widespread and often heavy and thundery by Monday afternoon.

Some locations will see heavy downpours, with 20 to 30 mm of rain in an hour.

Lightning and hail may also prove disruptive. Many areas may miss the downpours and stay largely dry, however.
