A sodden Sunday has seen the Anglia region's wettest day of November so far. While western parts of the UK were battered by strong winds and heavy rain during the week, it was a soggy weekend for eastern parts of Britain.
The wettest place in the Anglia region during Sunday was Weybourne on the north Norfolk coast with 15 mm (0.6 inches) of rain in the 12 hours to 9pm.
That made it the second wettest place in the UK during that period after Culdrose in Cornwall with 16.4 mm.
Rainfall totals in the Anglia region between 9am and 9pm on Sunday 16 November 2014
- 14.6 mm in Cromer, Norfolk
- 10.0 mm in Charsfield near Woodbridge, Suffolk
- 6.8 mm at Norwich Airport
- 6.2 mm at Andrewsfield near Braintree, Essex
- 5.8 mm in Cavendish, Suffolk
- 4.6 mm in Stowe, Buckinghamshire
- 3.8 mm in Writtle, Essex
- 3.6 mm in Northampton
- 0.8 mm in Cambridge
- 0.6 mm in Wittering, Cambridgeshire
Following a thoroughly wet morning across the Anglia region, the worst of the rain is now becoming confined to the east coast.
In the wake of this morning's rain, the Met office have now issued a yellow warning for fog, which is valid from 6pm this evening until midday on Saturday.
According to the Met Office Chief Meteorologist:
A combination of clearing skies, light winds and very moist ground mean that fog will readily form this evening over many parts of eastern England, and will locally become dense in places. Visibilities below 100 meters are likely in the denser areas of fog. The limited insolation available at this time of year, along with light winds, means that the fog will be rather reluctant to clear on Saturday morning, but current expectations are that most of the fog will have cleared by the end of the morning, although mist and low cloud is likely to plague some locations into the afternoon.

Britain has seen its hottest ever Halloween with temperatures breaking records for the last day of October.Read the full story ›
It's almost frightening just how warm it is outside this Halloween. Midday temperatures across East Anglia have widely reached 18 to 20°C and Santon Downham has seen the mercury climb to 21°C. This is higher than the previous UK Halloween record of 20°C held by Dartford since 1968.
However, it's Charlwood in Surrey that is the UK's warmest so far with a bloodcurdling midday temperature of 22.5°C. There were several days in August in which nowhere in the UK was as warm as this.
The warmth can't last forever, the weather will become significantly cooler during the next few days.
This October has been one of the hottest ever in East Anglia keeping 2014 on track for being a record-breaker.Read the full story ›
