It starts at noon and continues until 10 p.m. – so if you’re planning a day out tomorrow, you might want to pack a balaclava.

But the good news is that many places will miss out on the worst and the temperatures will remain mild.

The Met Office forecast says, “Many places are missing the worst, but heavy showers and thunderstorms can disrupt transportation and possibly flooding.

“After the rain overnight and in the morning, stronger showers and thunderstorms are expected to occur in the late morning.

“These become widespread in the afternoon, with torrential downpours possible in a few places, bringing about 20mm of rain in less than an hour and 30-40mm in a few hours.

“Lightning and hail can be additional hazards in some places. “
