On Saturday, the heavy rain is expected to continue with strong winds in the west of the county and potential for more thunder.
Weatherquest forecaster Fred Best said: “A deep area of low pressure will push some rain through around midnight tonight and through tomorrow there will be outbreaks of rain and heavy showers. Winds will pick up reaching up to 50mph in the south of the county, peaking around 2pm.”
A yellow weather warning has been put in place in large areas of the South West but so far there are no official warnings in place in Norfolk or Suffolk.
However the strong winds are predicted to settle Sunday morning with occasional sunny spells carrying through into Monday morning.
Overnight into tomorrow today should be mostly dry turning cloudy later.
