Suffolk was hit by heavy downpours this morning, leading to several accidents and flooded roads and there is more to come tomorrow.
There were several collisions on the road during the rush hour after 5.4mm of rain fell between midnight and 10am today.
Police warned drivers to take extra care during bad weather.
Chris Bell from forecasters Weatherquest said: “It wasn’t too exciting and was similar at Andrewsfield Aerodrome in Essex.”
And he added at this time of year conditions do make flooding more likely.
“This time of year we don’t get very much sunshine so you don’t get a lot of evaporation so the ground is saturated.
“The rain that comes in doesn’t have anywhere to go.

“It doesn’t need a lot of water for there to be standing water on the roads.”
Mr Bell said later this week on Wednesday evening some stormy conditions were likely with more rain and high winds - which could pose a problem for those at Portman Road for the Saints FA cup clash replay.
On the coast these could reach 60mph.
This could stay around until Thursday morning but from then on until the end of the weekend the weather is expected to be calmer and clearer.
