Warning Text:
Persistent and at times heavy rain is expected to spread from south to north during Wednesday, this affecting much of England and Wales. Some heavy and thundery showers could also develop across East Anglia and southeast England during the afternoon. Strong and gusty winds are also expected, with gales in exposure.

Rain should ease from the southwest later on Wednesday, but will persist across the north of the warning area into Thursday.

Some localised flooding is possible from fast responding water courses and standing water, this perhaps disrupting travel. Lightning associated with the afternoon showers across East Anglia and SE England will be an additional hazard.
