Heavy showers and thunderstorms may cause some disruption in places
Moderate
Now
From Today 10:00 (4 hours ago)
Until Today 19:00 (4 hours from now)
Official warning explanations:

Heavy showers and thunderstorms are likely to become organised into a band from southwest England to the south Midlands and parts of the Home Counties during late Sunday morning and into the afternoon. A few places may see 15-25 mm of rain in 1-2 hours from several showers moving over the same area, with a chance of 30-40 mm in one or two locations.

What should I do?

Consider if your location is at risk of flash flooding. If so, consider preparing a flood plan and an emergency flood kit.

Give yourself the best chance of avoiding delays by checking road conditions if driving, or bus and train timetables, amending your travel plans if necessary.

People cope better with power cuts when they have prepared for them in advance. It’s easy to do; consider gathering torches and batteries, a mobile phone power pack and other essential items.

If you find yourself outside and hear thunder, protect yourself by finding a safe enclosed shelter (such as a car). Do not shelter under or near trees, or other structures which may be struck by lightning. If you are on an elevated area move to lower ground.

Be prepared for weather warnings to change quickly: when a weather warning is issued, the Met Office recommends staying up to date with the weather forecast in your area. For further details see https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/warnings-and-advice/uk-warnings
