Forecast: Heavy rain is expected over East Anglia, then moving north and west to bring rainfall to areas between, roughly, the Northampton to Leeds area. Later the rain will continue westwards to Wales. There is still some uncertainty later in the forecast but there is a possibility the watch may be extended to SW England for late Fri/Sat. In the areas with the heaviest rain accumulations of 50-75mm are expected during the watch period with more on higher ground.
Due to the state of the ground it's expected that flash flooding will occur in prone areas.
