The Met Office’s yellow weather warning says heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected in places, leading to possible flooding and travel disruption.
It warns that spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures, and there is a “small chance” that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater or lightning strikes, possibly also by hail or strong winds
There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost.
Parts of Suffolk have seen flash flooding in the past two days due to sudden and heavy downpours.
