The Exeter-based Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning advising people to "be aware" of heavy rainfall.
Met Office spokesman Helen Chivers said: "Miserable weather is on the way unfortunately.
"Today and Wednesday there will be a mixture of sunshine and showers in Devon and Cornwall, with the possibility of heavy thundery and possibility hail showers."
"The heavy will come into parts of Cornwall and South Devon on Thursday morning, setting the tone for the next couple of days."
She added: "With the ground already saturated, there is a risk of flooding in some parts."
