Downpours begin to ease
MORE heavy rain was predicted for East Anglia overnight – but it should make way for sunnier spells.
And weather experts are confident of a clearer outlook not just for today but tomorrow as well.
Scattered showers will permeate a cloud filled sky later today, according to Met Office forecasters.
But the night-time rainfall which has lately swept across the county will be on the whole more moderate during this evening.
Downpours were expected to hit large areas of the UK last night, with warnings of flash flooding and possible lightning strikes.
