The Met Office has posted flood warnings and around 60 flood alerts across the south west of England and Wales.

A localized yellow weather warning has been issued for Pembrokeshire for most of today.

But the weather will not be as temperamental as it was yesterday and overnight.

During the day, although the wet and windy weather will probably make it feel cooler.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkhill said: 'It's going to be a breezy day for most places with showers around the South and West.

'We could get spells of more regular showers pushing westwards during the day.

Those showers could be heavy with a bit of thunder mixed in and possibly some hail.

'The north-east of England and Scotland could stay dry.'
