TONIGHT into FRIDAY
A band of heavyrain, with the possibility of some very heavy bursts, will move northwards during Thursday night and Friday.
Within this band 10-15 mm is widely expected, however some places could see as much as 30 mm in just a few hours.
Heavy, and occasionally thundery showers, are expected to develop through Saturday, lasting into the first part of Sunday.
Whilst many areas will miss the worst of these thundery showers, a few spots could see 15-25 mm within an hour and 30-40 mm within 3 hours
Unseasonably strong southwesterly winds are expected to cause some disruption, with gusts over 40 mph quite widely inland.
Gusts over 50 mph are possible across parts of central and south-eastern England, particularly in association with showers.
