The Met Office has issued the yellow-graded warning of heavy rain between midday and 23.55pm.

It is predicted that heavy showers in the afternoon could result in up to 15mm of rain falling on the South West in one hour.

A spokesperson for the Exeter-based forecaster said: “Showers will develop on Tuesday and are likely to become locally heavy and thundery in the afternoon and evening giving 10 to 15mm in an hour and perhaps 20 to 30mm in 3 hours or less.

“The showers are likely to persist well into Tuesday evening. The public should be aware that these could lead to localised surface water flooding.”
