It's already been a very wet start to the week and further spells of rain, heavy at times, will continue to affect parts of eastern England on Tuesday (June 11).

While some places will miss the worst of the rain, a further 10-25mm may fall quite widely, with some areas potentially seeing up to 60mm.

Much of this may fall in six to 12 hours, mainly during the first half of Tuesday.

There is also a chance that thunder may develop later in the day in the south of the warning area once the morning's rain clears.

There is a chance that heavy prolonged rainfall could lead to flooding and disruption to transport.

Spray and flooding could result in difficult driving conditions and some road closures and, wherever flooding occurs, there is a slight chance of delays or cancellations to train and bus services.

Cambridgeshire looks set to miss the worst of the weather on Monday afternoon though.

The Met Office has issued an amber warning for parts of the East of England, including Hertfordshire but excluding Cambridgeshire, for the afternoon and evening, warning some places could see 50-60 mm falling in the space of four to six hours, with the showers gradually easing later this evening.
