Between 8pm and 9pm downpours will be seen across Norfolk with up to 8mm of rain per hour seen in areas like Norwich, Reepham and Wymondham.

Heavy rain is forecast to continue for the following hour but will begin to ease off at around 10pm. 

Showers will still be seen across north Norfolk from 11pm until midnight. 

Between 1am and 2am heavier rain of up to 16mm per hour will head north across the county with areas like Diss, Attleborough and Norwich being worst affected. 

These heavier downpours will continue until 4am with showers expected throughout the day on Friday. 

The Met Office has warned that this spell of rain will fall on "saturated ground" which is likely to lead to further flooding and travel disruption. 

The Environment Agency has also issued two new warnings for the River Nar and the River Yare.

There are 11 further flood alerts in place across the county.
