Met Office meteorologist Becky Mitchell said: “Those showers could be quite heavy and intense, and thundery in some areas.

“However other parts of the country will see a relatively nice day.”

Ms Mitchell said it will be dry with sunny spells elsewhere in England, with temperatures expected to hover around the high teens and low 20s.

Dry and sunny conditions will return on Tuesday for most areas, although cloudy skies are forecast across Scotland and Northern Ireland.
