There is a possibility of surface water flooding and disruption to travel where torrential downpours do occur.

Temperatures will remain warm reaching today reaching up to 20°C however, heavy thundery showers could hit Flintshire from 1pm, they will ‘turn locally torrential with the risk of hail in some places’ say the Met Office – hopefully swerving Deeside!

The warning is in place between 1pm and 9pm.
