The Met Office issued a yellow warning for thunderstorms across much of England and Wales from midnight to 6pm on Sunday evening. Forecasters said weather conditions could disrupt travel, while flooding is possible in some areas.

Heavy rain, and potentially even hail, will fall on the fourth day of the Platinum Jubilee events. The areas most likely to be affected are parts of the Midlands, East Anglia and South East England.

Further south, drier conditions are expected to develop briefly on Sunday morning before further showers and thunderstorms develop later over parts of southern England, Wales, the Midlands and East Anglia. On Saturday, a yellow thunderstorm warning is in place for parts of South West England until early afternoon.

For the northeast, the Met Office said early cloudiness would thin with some brightness possible inland. But he said it would become cloudy again later, with heavy rain in many areas in the evening.
