After a sunny start for most of the region on Thursday morning, forecasters are warning of heavy shower, thunder and lightning to end the day.

Norwich-based forecasters Weatherquest said that although the day had started off bright and sunny it wasn’t likely to stay that way for long.

Conditions should stay largely dry this morning but there could be a few showers before lunch but these are more likely into this afternoon.

There’s a risk of thunderstorms and some lightning across the region as the day goes on with the heavy showers set to continue on and off through the afternoon and into the evening.

Top temperatures today are around 14 or 15C, with conditions feeling warm during the breaks between showers.
