There was heavy traffic in Ipswich after flooding along Wherstead Road resulted in motorists forming lengthy queues in rush hour.
The AA traffic map has said there was flooding under the bridge near Cowell Street.
The map suggested there were queues forming as far back as Stoke Bridge near the town centre and the junction for the A14.
By mid-morning, the traffic had returned to normal levels.
Heavy rain fell in Suffolk overnight and continued into the morning, with the conditions forcing a temporary speed limit to be introduced on the Orwell Bridge just outside of Ipswich.
