Scattered showers persist as heavy downpours subside
Another projected bout of heavy rain was expected to lighten over East Anglia this morning, making way for sunnier spells.
Thundery overnight showers were once again forecast across the region but weather experts are confident of a clearer outlook today and tomorrow.
Scattered showers will permeate a cloud filled sky later today, according to Met Office forecasters.
But the night-time rainfall which has lately swept the county will be on the whole more moderate this evening.
Downpours were expected to hit large areas of the UK last night, with warnings of flash flooding and possible lightning strikes.
