As in previous days, some locations may miss the showers, but residents and those visiting the county should be prepared for some localised flooding.

The forecaster’s assessment is: “The daily rise in temperature will again trigger slow-moving heavy showers and thunderstorms.

“Once again, 15-25 mm could fall within an hour in scattered locations, bringing the risk of flooding, especially if across urban areas.

“Lightning could be an additional hazard.”
