The weather warning covering the Anglia region is in force from 10am and 9pm on Wednesday 15 June 2016

The Met Office says scattered heavy, thundery showers are expected to develop yet again on Wednesday, and will lead to slow-moving downpours.

The weather forecaster says: "As on preceding days, some locations will miss these downpours, but please be aware of possible localised flooding and disruption to travel where they do occur."

"Rising temperatures will trigger slow-moving heavy showers and thunderstorms.

"Once again, 15-25 mm are likely to fall within an hour in scattered locations, bringing the risk of flooding, especially if across urban areas."

A similar weather warning has also been issued for Thursday valid from 10am until 10pm.

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for the region, warning that heavy showers could cause disruption until 10pm tonight.

Some will become thundery, leading to slow-moving downpours across the warning area. Some locations will miss these but where they do occur, please be aware of possible localised flooding and disruption to travel. Lightning could be an additional hazard.
