These cover large parts of Britain, including Shropshire and Wales.
Environment Agency bosses say there is a low risk of flooding in the county with more than two inches of rain expected to fall this afternoon.
A band of heavy rain is moving north-eastwards throughout the day and was expected to hit the county at lunchtime.
The Met Office is advising motorists to be cautious in case of surface water.
A spokesman said: “Heavy rain accompanied by strong winds is expected to spread north in the morning and afternoon, to affect parts of western England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
“The heaviest rain is likely to clear from the south by evening, but strong winds will peak a little later.
“The public should be aware of the possibility of surface water flooding and the likelihood of difficult travel conditions.
“The public is advised to take extra care.”
More than two inches of rain could fall in parts of Shropshire, the Met Office has warned.
The storm was expected to pass by early evening with sunshine and showers forecast for tomorrow.
Flash flooding from heavy storms have already wreaked havoc on parts of Shropshire and Mid Wales earlier this year.
