A spokesman for Norwich-based forecaster Weatherquest said: "This warning is coming off the back of a western weather front and Norfolk isn't likely to see heavy rain until later in the afternoon around 5pm.

"Wednedsay will be a largely cloudy and damp day and it's if things brighten up later in the day that will trigger heavy showers and rumbles of thunder."

Temperatures during the day are expected to peak at around 19C with lows of around 11C.
