STORMS and heavy rain are forecast for the next two days.
The Met Office has issued a ‘yellow alert’ covering Wednesday and Thursday.
The means there could be severe or hazardous weather with the potential to cause danger to life or widespread disruption
A Met Office spokesman said: ‘Rain will arrive into southern areas on Wednesday morning, before spreading to the rest of the warning area through the afternoon and into Thursday. Rain should ease from the south during the day, though some heavy and thundery showers may develop across the south east.
‘Most parts of the warning area should see 15-30 mm of rain, however some places could see as much as 40-70mm. Thunderstorms developing across the southeast on Wednesday afternoon have the potential to generate 15-25mm of rain in a few hours.
‘This is a very complex development, and uncertainty in timings and areas most at risk is large. As such this warning will be updated as confidence in developments increases.’
