Around 30-40mm of rain could fall in just a few hours along with lightning strikes.

The possibility of flooding is also prevalent in homes and businesses, with some communities facing the prospect of being temporarily cut off due to flooded roads.

This could affect driving conditions, causing delays on the road, as well as train services too.

Those in the worst affected regions are also being advised that fast flowing or deep floodwater could cause danger to life.
