Thunderstorms are forecast to hit parts of Kent after temperatures rose to as high as 29C.
A yellow weather warning has been issued across the towns as officials expect the weather to last until 7pm.
The alert says: "A line of thunderstorms has now formed over the South East and is expected to persist for the next few hours.
"Driving conditions will be affected by spray, standing water and/or hail, leading to longer journey times by car and bus.
"There could be delays to train services and some short-term loss of power and other services."
The warning also states that there could be "some flooding of a few homes and businesses, leading to some damage to buildings or structures".
This comes after the county was bathed in sunshine as temperatures soared to almost 30C.
A downpour came as a welcome relief to some.
A video of a shower was tweeted by @anoushka_im who said: "Anyone else ridiculously grateful for this today?"
Meanwhile, the Met Office has issued its first-ever “amber extreme heat warning”.
The alert covers a large part of Wales, all of south-west England and parts of southern and central England, and will remain in force until the end of Thursday.
