The Met Office said spray and flooding are expected on some roads, which will increase travel times.

A spokesman said: “Further rain is likely to affect Sussex intermittently on Sunday afternoon.

“This may subside for a while, but there is a chance that there will be brief periods of heavier rain on Sunday evening.

“Ten to 20mm of rain is likely to fall, with a chance of seeing up to 30mm in one or two spots; this rather during the evening.

“Given the saturated soil and the high level of the river, this poses a risk of some flooding. The rain is expected to taper eastwards by midnight.”

There are seven flood warnings in Sussex, although these are classified as “low risk”.
