Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Jason Kelly said: ‘The current warm weather will give way to a thundery outburst from the west, spreading south and east early next week. Before then, isolated but intense thunderstorms are possible on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
“The warnings highlight the possibility that some places will see around 50mm of rain over a three-hour period in the north, with some areas further south potentially seeing around 30mm of rain over a three-hour period.
“Frequent hail and lightning are also possible as part of these showers and pose an additional hazard.”
