The Met Office said: “A spell of heavy rain early in the day clears northwards but is followed by fairly frequent heavy and blustery showers.

“These are likely to be focused in some southern and southeastern coastal counties by afternoon, with thunderstorms catching a few locations.

“Around 15-25 mm of rain will fall in some places but with perhaps 30 – 40 mm by the end of the day in coastal southeast England.

“Additional hazards could include large waves and spray along some southern coasts.”

The deadly storm could even develop into a second – which would be named Storm Debi.

If Strom Debi looms its head, it would be the third named storm to hit the UK in two weeks – and the second one in 48 hours.

Wednesday and Thursday saw winds of over 100mph and 30mm rainfall pound areas of the UK.

The horrible weather has led to some train services being cancelled, and commuters have been cautioned from going into the office.
