"There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost."

Difficult driving conditions due to spray and sudden flooding may lead to possible road closures, the Met Office also warns.

And there is a "small chance" that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly.

It is yet another weather warning after heavy rain and strong winds affected West Norfolk on Friday and Saturday.

The Ceramic tile painting event at Hunstanton Heritage Gardens had to be cancelled over the weekend due to the bad weather.

Hosted by the borough council, the event took place today and yesterday instead.

Houghton Hall music festival was also cancelled amid warnings of heavy rain and high winds ahead of the event.

A post on the festival's Facebook page said: "We are utterly devastated. All the hard work, love and creativity that has gone into planning and producing this year’s event made this an almost impossible decision to make.

"This was set to be a wonderful weekend and the boldest step we have ever taken as a festival. However, nothing is more important than the safety of our customers, staff and performers, which would be compromised if we were to go ahead."

There are currently no further weather warnings for West Norfolk from Thursday to Monday, August 19.
