The Met Office has warned that homes may be flooded and there could be structural damage to buildings due to lightening strikes.

Some places are expected to see as much as 20-30 mm of rain in less than an hour, forecasters said.

The severe weather could affect local transport, causing cancellations to train and bus services.

The Met Office said: “Although the locations affected by thunderstorms remains uncertain, a few places may experience a combination of heavy rain, frequent lightning and hail during Sunday night.

“Should thunderstorms develop, they are likely to move north from the south coast during Sunday evening into parts of south Wales, southern England and East Anglia overnight before gradually weakening during Monday morning.

“Whilst some places will remain dry, a few places may see 20-30 mm of rain fall in less than an hour, with frequent lightning and hail additional hazards.”
