A yellow weather warning has been issued for East Anglia going into the weekend.

The Met Office has said there could be a chance of heavy rain and strong winds between 12noon Friday and 9am the following day.

In the warning posted on its website the forecasters said: “An area of rain and strong to gale force winds is expected to cross much of southern England before clearing to the east on Saturday morning.”

The warning also advised the public to be aware of the potential for disruption because of the weather, “particularly for those engaged in outdoor activities”.

The cause is an area of low pressure running northeastwards close to southern England and while wet and windy weather is expected the Met Office is uncertain how intense they will be at this stage.
