Thundery showers are expected tomorrow afternoon and evening (Tuesday) with the additional risk of hail.

The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning in Essex as up to 50mm rainfall is expected over a few hours, which could cause flooding.

The chief forecaster said: “Whilst most places will miss the worst, please be aware of the risk of localised flooding.

“Warm, moist air from the continent will be made more unstable by a system coming over it from the Atlantic, bringing the risk of 20mm or more in an hour and 50mm in a few hours.”
