The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for heavy rain in parts of Suffolk and Essex.
It's valid until 5pm on Bank Holiday Monday.
The Met Offices says further areas of heavy rain or thundery showers are likely to affect parts of southeastern England and East Anglia at times on Bank Holiday Monday.
The main risk periods would seem to be before dawn and again during the middle of the day and into the afternoon. The evening should see a slow transition to drier conditions from the west.
"Parts of East Anglia and southeast England will still be affected by a warm, humid and unstable airmass during much of Monday, which leaves the opportunity for thundery downpours to spread from Northern France.
As in many such cases, only a minority of places will see the heaviest rain, but there is a chance that some locations could see 20 to 25 mm of rain in an hour and perhaps 40 mm in a few hours."
Boats of all shapes and sizes have been making their way to Northampton this weekend for a major event celebrating the 200th anniversary of the opening of the Northampton canal Arm.
The Arm connected the Grand Union Canal (or Grand Junction as it was then known) to the Nene in Northampton, creating a route to the East Anglian waterways and the Wash by water.
The Arm replaced an earlier horse drawn railway between Gayton Junction and an unloading point at Far Cotton where a restored historic crane still stands.
The Arm enabled ironstone and limestone to be carried to local blast furnaces, grain and flour to and from mills along the Nene, coal from North Warwickshire and timber from London's Surrey Docks to Northampton.IWA is holding a major waterways event on the river Nene over the August Bank Holiday Weekend in 2015.
The event was opened by actor Timothy West and his wife, Fawlty Towers star Prunella Scales. The couple present a television series on canal boat journeys.

The book well known for telling us all the biggest, smallest, slowest and quickest records is celebrating its own milestone.
The Guinness Book of Records was first published 60 years ago and getting a record included remains as popular as ever.
The Managing Director of the Guinness Brewery ended up in an argument about the fastest game bird in Europe while out shooting. Unable to settle the dispute, he came up with the idea of producing a book full of facts and figures.
Some records have changed over the years, In 1955, the fastest 100m sprint was 10.2 seconds, The current record holder is Usain Bolt, with 9.58 seconds and and the most expensive bottle of wine, previously £8, is now £192,000.
