A spokesperson said: "Delays for high-sided vehicles and caravans on exposed routes and bridges likely.

Moving north, Birmingham is set to see torrential rain from midday as a band of wet and wild weather moves up across the UK, also hitting Manchester and Newcastle.

Northern Ireland can expect dull and drizzly conditions for most of Friday, while Scotland is forecast to remain fairly dry until around 6pm.

Temperatures will remain in the high teens and low 20Cs across most of the UK, with highs of 23C on the south east coast.

The Met Office outlook for the weekend reads: "Thundery showers dissipating into Saturday to leave a day of sunshine and showers.

"Fresher on Sunday with further showers. Showers becoming isolated Monday. Warm and humid, especially in the southeast."

A Met Office spokesperson said: "Although temperatures are set to pick up this week, an August Bank Holiday heatwave is looking probably unlikely."

This comes after Brits enjoyed basking in glorious summer sunshine earlier this week.
