Parts of Norfolk can expect to see some thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, according to forecasters.
The Met Office has put a yellow weather warning in place which will stay in effect until midnight.
The western parts of the county are the most likely to see unsettled weather, with King's Lynn likely to see busts of heavy rain and flashes in the sky around mid afternoon.
The weather warning does cover Norwich, but the city is less likely to see too many dramatic scenes.
Most northern and easterly parts of the county, like Cromer, Stalham, Acle and Great Yarmouth, are not covered by the warning.
