A yellow Met Office weather warning for heavy rain and thunderstorms is set to remain in place across Norfolk today.

The alert is active until 8pm and warns of potential flooding across the county.

A spokesman for The Met Office said: “There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings.

“Where flooding occurs there is a chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services.”

They added: “Spray and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures. There is also a small chance that either flooding or lightning strikes could lead to power cuts or loss of other services to some homes and businesses.”

Norwich-based Weatherquest predicted that things would settle down and brighten by Sunday.

Forecaster Richard Jones said: “On Sunday things will settle down and we’ll see somewhat more sunshine, with maximum temperatures in-land around 19C to 20C, with things being a little cooler on the coast.

“It will be a mainly dry day, with a small chance of isolated showers in the afternoon. The following week will also start off quite dry and settled, with some chances of mist and fog in the mornings.”
