Valid from: 1200 on Fri 15 Apr 2016

Warning Text:
Heavy, possibly thundery, showers or some longer spells of rain are expected to become more widespread through today, particularly this afternoon and early evening. Although some places will miss the heavier rain, where it occurs, please be aware of the possibility of local surface water flooding.

Chief Forecasters Assessment:
There are already some areas of rain and showers across southern areas, but as temperatures increase this morning, these are likely to become heavy in places, with localised downpours possible. Furthermore, as on recent days, the showers may well organise themselves into slow-moving bands of heavy rain, which may produce 20 to 30 mm of rain over 2 or 3 hours.
