Although the weather warning has only been issued for today, it will continue to rain all through tomorrow.

"The thunderstorms may begin to ease across western and northern areas later.

"20-30 mm of rain could fall within an hour in a few places, and up to around 50 mm in three to six hours.

"Hail and frequent lightning are also possible hazards.”
