A spokesperson said: “Slow-moving heavy showers and thunderstorms will break out across many parts of the UK again on Wednesday afternoon. Some places will miss them, but where they do occur they will bring torrential downpours with 25 to 35 mm rain falling in an hour and perhaps 50 mm in 2 to 3 hours in one or two places.
