The spokesman added: “Although there is some uncertainty over timing, further bands of persistent and occasionally heavy rain are expected to spread to parts of south west England and Wales later on Thursday and continue to spread north and east overnight.

“Following recent weather this additional rainfall brings a continuing risk of minor disruption due to river and surface water flooding.

“Two day totals in the wetter areas, especially hillier locations, may reach 40mm and locally 60mm. Clearer but still showery weather should spread to at least southern areas during Friday.”
