The Met Office says Kent residents can expect spray and sudden flooding which could lead to difficult driving conditions or temporary road closures.

There is also a chance of delays and some cancellations to train or bus services where flooding or lightning strikes occur.

Damage to some buildings from floodwater or lightning strikes is also a small possibility.

The Met Office's forecast suggests that most areas in the south east will see spells of sunshine with light winds throughout the day.

There are scattered showers and heavy thunderstorms also expected, however.

Showers are forecast over the county throughout the night as the thunderstorms begin to ease.

No additional warnings are currently in place for the rest of the week.
