    Some torrential downpours (rain rates in excess of 32mm/3 hours) are expected, and with the rain slow-moving at times, flash flooding could well occur. Driving conditions will also become dangerous. Rainfall totals could be as high as 50mm (2 inches) in places. Lightning, gusty winds and large hail could also be an additional hazard.
