Met Office meteorologist Martin Bowles said those areas which could be heaviest hit include Wales and central southern England.

“You can get a lot of rain in a short time. You can get flooding issues with people driving on roads facing large puddles,” he said.

“It is a be prepared warning so it is not expected to cause problems but people need to be aware of it.”

The warning states: “Heavy showers, which will most likely become thundery in places, are expected to develop quite widely across parts of England and Wales later Friday morning and through the afternoon.

“Some of the showers are likely to become focused into slow-moving bands, particularly over south-west England, with some locations receiving around 20mm in an hour.

“As is the nature of showers however, many places within the warning area will miss them altogether, and have a dry day.”
