Reason for update
Update to warning area to extend it east over southeast England and East Anglia and to reduce westward extent, based on latest information.
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. Where these showers become slow moving, 40 to 60 mm 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.
