The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms for Tuesday afternoon. 

The yellow warning comes into force at 1pm and will remain in place until midnight. 

It covers most of Suffolk apart from the east coast. 

"Thunderstorms developing this afternoon may cause impacts to travel and power supplies," said the Met Office. 

"Flooding of homes and businesses could happen quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds."

It had been hoped that the thunderstorms would be more isolated during the week ahead of further thunderstorms at the weekend.
