The Met Office has issued a weather warning for torrential rain and thunderstorms later today (Thursday June 23).

The yellow ‘be aware’ warning is for all of the county and is in place for all today and up to the early hours of tomorrow.

However, the forecast suggests that rain is more likely after lunch.

The Met office says: “Warm and humid air has spread into roughly the south-eastern quarter of the UK, bringing with it a risk of thunderstorms this afternoon and evening.

“Where thunderstorms occur torrential rain and frequent lightning are expected - 30mm or more of rain could fall in an hour and locally in excess of 50mm is possible in two or three hours.”

The weekend is due to see a mix of sunshine and rain with Sunday the better of the two days.
