Pub-goers in Suffolk and north Essex are being warned to brace for heavy rainfall over the weekend.

Thursday is set to be a mostly clear day and sunny spells are also possible on Friday.

But showers are forecast throughout Saturday in the region, with wind speeds expected to reach up to 20mph.

A drizzly day is also expected on Sunday, with a small chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Pubs and restaurants are not permitted to open inside until May 17 - meaning customers could face a wet weekend.

The Met Office has not yet issued any weather warnings in the East of England for the next few days.
