The Met Office says showers should begin to ease late this evening.

"A band of rain and heavy, possibly thundery showers, will slowly drift east through Sunday before becoming slow-moving over the highlighted area later today," the Met Office says.

"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. Many places will see much smaller amounts however, and showers should begin to ease late this evening."
