Torrential downpours could see more than an inch of rain fall in an hour today (Saturday), and possibly lead to flash flooding.

The violent thunderstorms will reach their peak this afternoon, and forecasters are warning there could be multiple lightning strikes.

The chaotic weather is being caused by hot air from southern Europe clashing with moist air over the UK.
