The Met Office said of the warning: “Following a hot day (in places exceptionally so), scattered thunderstorms are likely to break out from late afternoon onwards.

“While some areas, particularly in the south of the warning area may well avoid the storms, where they do occur they could produce 20-30 mm of rain in less than an hour, along with frequent lightning, hail and gusty winds.

“Perhaps the main focus will be later in the evening and into the first part of the night across northern England and southern and eastern parts of Scotland, where storms could be more widespread and locally intense.”
