A flood warning has been issued with weather experts predicting heavy rain to hit the county this weekend.
Drivers are being warned of difficult conditions later tonight (Friday) and through Saturday as showers begin to spread from the west.
Heavy rain will then move east, meaning coastal areas are likely to be most affected.
Some places could see 30 mm in two or three hours with a few locations potentially seeing as much as 40 mm in six hours.
Along with the heavy rain there may be thunderstorms which could be accompanied by hail and gusty winds before rain will gradually clear to the east during the evening.
The Met Office’s Yellow warning suggests the forecast rainfall totals could lead to localised surface water flooding, difficult driving conditions, disruption to transport and the lightning could potentially lead to isolated power outages.
