"Most southern and eastern parts will start dry with some warm sunshine, although a weakening band of rain will move slowly eastwards.

The weather department said that this changeable and sometimes extreme weather will continue into Sunday.

"Sunday will be a cool and breezy day with a mix of sunshine and showers.

Parts of the UK enjoyed a scorching 30C Bank Holiday weekend last week.

Brits basked in the hottest August Bank Holiday on record with temperatures reaching 33.2C (91.8F) at Heathrow beating the previous record of 28.2C set two years ago.

But the warnings of thunderstorms came in the middle of the week.

Forecasts said that there will be "spells of heavy rain" across the northwest of the UK and Northern Ireland.
