Region: East Midlands
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.
Many areas missing the worst, but heavy showers may lead to localised flooding and disruption to transport.
