Heavy thundery showers are expected across East Sussex at times today (Monday July 28), the Met Office said.

The forecaster has a severe weather warning out for rain, with isolated thundery downpours becoming widespread across the Southeast by morning, dying out for a time later in the morning, before further isolated heavy showers and thunderstorms develop again in the afternoon.

There is also a risk of heavy rain affecting the far Southeast at times later today and into Monday night.

The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding, especially if the downpours affect urban areas.
