Each shower could bring 20-40mm of rainfall within an hour, with isolated locations that experience several showers perhaps seeing 75-100mm of rainfall within the space of a few hours. Although some isolated lightning is likely rainfall and the associated surface water flooding are expected to bring the greatest impacts.

Information on update: Area covered by the warning reduced southwards and eastwards.

Rainfall amounts will vary considerably from place to place, but hourly totals could approach 30-40 mm in some places, with a few locations perhaps picking up 60 to 80 mm from successive showers and storms.
