"Where these showers become slow moving, 40 to 60mm of rain could fall in a relatively short time leading to surface water flooding and transport disruption," it said.

Residents have been told to expect spray and flooding on the roads, which could lead to difficult driving conditions and road closures. Train and bus services may also be affected.

There is also a chance of power cuts and loss of other services.
