Less rain is expected to fall today - and the afternoon looks dry - but there is still a risk of flooding in some areas following the wet weather.

Eight flood warnings and alerts remain in Suffolk today, with much of the River Brett covered by a red flood alert Picture: DUNCAN BRODIEEight flood warnings and alerts remain in Suffolk today, with much of the River Brett covered by a red flood alert Picture: DUNCAN BRODIE

Currently 83 flood warnings are in place across England, with only one in Suffolk - the River Brett from Lavenham to Higham. But many flood alerts, which mean flooding is possible, are still in place in the county.

Looking at today's forecast, Fred Best, a forecaster from Wetherquest, said only 1/2mm is expected to fall.

He said this morning there could be patchy showers, but they would clear by lunchtime, paving the way for a dry and sunny afternoon.

It is also looking dry overnight, though he said there could be the odd shower, and during tomorrow.

He said: "The Environment Agency do have a few flood warnings across Suffolk and quite a few flood alerts. The rain we see is not going to be huge amounts, but obviously anywhere that still has flooding from earlier this week, any rain will exacerbate that a little bit."

The top temperature today will be 8/9C and overnight it will drop to 4/5C.

Looking ahead to next week, Christmas Day is looking dry and sunny, but it may rain on Boxing Day.
