BBC Weather meteorologist Carol Kirkwood forecasted the area of low pressure will continue to bring in heavy rain across the country throughout Wednesday and Thursday. The BBC forecaster said thunderstorms and hail will develop during the day in the southwest as heavier downpours will target the rest of the UK. Ms Kirkwood said: "We’re looking at sunshine and showers and windy for most of us as well. A noticeable breeze or a stronger wind depending on where you are.
"That is because low pressure once again over the next few days is dominating our weather.
"Isobars tell you is going to be windy as the front move on through, enhancing the showers until later in the week when we’ve got an arrear front bringing in some rain.
"The wind is coming in from the West and the southwest, which is a mild direction so we are not expecting any problem with frost and by day, temperatures are roughly where they should be at this stage in October."
The BBC Weather meteorologist continued: "First thing this morning, there are already quite a few showers around - thunderstorms just off the south coast and, through the day, some of those showers will merge to give some heavier downpours.

"We’ll have some hail and also some thunder and lighting in them. Gusty winds that will blow the showers across from the west to the east quite quickly.
"The other thing is, of course, the nature of the showers means some of us could dodge them all together and get away with a dry day. Temperatures 11C to 15C so down a touch on yesterday."
Ms Kirkwood forecasted rain is to continue through Wednesday evening into Thursday morning
