The weather could cause disruption to travel and there is a small chance homes and businesses could be damaged in flooding.

Trains and bus services could also be affected by this and driving conditions will be more difficult due to spray on the roads.

In early December Suffolk saw serious flooding when snowfall began to melt.

Roads in Lavenham, Bramford and Copdock village were completely cut off and 10 people had to be rescued from a bus stuck in floodwaters in Brockley.
