The Met Office has issued an Amber Warning of Rain.

Valid from: 1600 on Thu 13 Aug 2015
Valid to: 2100 on Thu 13 Aug 2015

Warning Text:
After very heavy downpours this morning, a second cluster of torrential, thundery downpours is expected to move north across the area from late afternoon. The public should be prepared for the risk of flooding of roads and properties.

Chief Forecasters Assessment:
Another pulse of thundery activity from France will extend across the area this afternoon and evening. The ground remains saturated from earlier heavy rain, and the high water loading in the atmosphere means that more than 30 mm in an hour or less could well occur locally.
