15:04 27 August 2015
Our region is expected to be lashed with heavy rain over the Bank Holiday weekend, with the potential for flooding.
The worst of the weather is set to hit on Saturday evening, with heavy rain showers and thunderstorms expected to last through to Sunday morning.
Adam Drury, a weather forecaster for University of East Anglia-based Weatherquest, said: “Saturday will start off dry but thunderstorms are expected in the evening with heavy rain showers expected to last through the evening until Sunday morning. This could cause localised flooding.
“Sunday will be dry through the day but further rain is expected to develop in the evening. On Monday there will be persistent rain throughout the day.”
Torrential rain has already caused disruption this week, with travel delays and fire crews called out to deal with flooding in the region on Wednesday.
