Get set for more thundery downpours and lightning

For the sixth day running the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for the risk of thundery downpours in some parts of the Anglia region.

The weather warning is in force from 10am until 10pm on Thursday 16 June 2016

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

The 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. Lightning could be an additional hazard."

"The daily rise in temperature will again trigger slow-moving heavy showers and thunderstorms.

"Once again, 15-25 mm could fall within an hour in scattered locations, and possibly more very locally,bringing the risk of flooding, especially if across urban areas."
