There could be "intense downpours" as thunderstorms cross parts of England and Wales today.
There is also a warning of sudden flooding, affecting transport routes, homes and businesses.
Some areas could see hail and lightning, although many places may miss the downpours.
Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst said the risk of storms was likely to develop during the early hours across the south coast of England, before moving north into the London area.
East Anglia and Cambridgeshire are likely to be affected by lunchtime, while there could be further storms across parts of the Midlands, eastern parts of Wales, the Pennines and Yorkshire.
Temperatures are expected to remain high.
In London, it could hit 31C (87.8F). The temperature at Heathrow on Wednesday reached 29.5C (85.1F).
While the storms will be triggered by unstable air and high temperatures, Mr Dewhurst said that "not everywhere will see them. There will be lots of places that will stay dry".
Flood duty manager at the Environment Agency, Chris Wilding, said: "Thunderstorms and intense, heavy rain are possible across parts of the country on Thursday and in eastern England during the early hours of Friday morning.
"This could lead to localised flooding and disruption to travel, particularly in urban areas."
Mr Wilding added: "Environment Agency teams are out on the ground and will support local authorities in responding to surface water flooding.
"We urge people not to drive though flood water - it is often deeper than it looks and just 30cm of flowing water is enough to float your car and cause an accident."
