Warning:
A band of heavy rain accompanied by locally very squally winds, chiefly in the west, will move quickly northeast across southern parts of the UK during Thursday night, clearing the southeast by mid morning on Friday.

The public should be aware of the risk of disruption, chiefly from localised surface water flooding.

Chief Forecasters assessment:

Another rapidly deepening area of low pressure is expected to move north across Ireland during Friday morning with the associated cold front sweeping northeast across England and Wales bringing a relatively narrow band of heavy rain, which could produce 10-20 mm within 2-3 hours. The strongest of the winds should remain to the west of the warning area, although very localised squalls may accompany the cold front across southwest England and Wales.
