A torrential downpour in the early hours of Monday morning made Santon Downham in Suffolk the wettest place in the UK.
Between 1am and 11am, the site in Thetford Forest had 51.2 mm (2 inches) of rain which is close to the amount it receives during the whole of an average July. During just one hour at 5am, the weather station had 33 mm (1.3 inches) of rain.
The deluge was isolated and most places in the Anglia region had little or no rain by 10am Monday morning.
Norwich had 48.6 mm (1.9 inches) of rain on Sunday 20 July.
Rainfall totals averaged across the Anglia region during July have reached 56 mm (2.2 inches) which is 25% more rain than normal. But that average hides wide variations in the totals. Norwich has so far had 95 mm (3.7 inches) of rain during July while Bedford has had just 35 mm (1.4 inches).
The Anglia region is not as wet as July 2012 when there was 107 mm (4.2 inches) making it the second wettest July on record.

– Paul Todd, Green Flag award scheme manager
'It's another record-breaking year for the scheme. This is something well worth celebrating and testament to the efforts of the thousands of men and women, supported by some amazing volunteers, who work tirelessly to maintain the high standards demanded by the Green Flag Award.
The parks sector is facing some tough challenges so it is heartening to see that they are committed to maintaining and improving standards. We know how passionate people are about our parks and green spaces and the recent Heritage Lottery Fund report, State of UK Public Parks, highlighted the need for everyone to work together to ensure they are maintained for future generations."

Pressure is mounting this evening on Bury St Edmunds Conservative MP David Ruffley to resign after receiving a police caution for an assault on his then girlfriend.
Mr Ruffley, a former shadow police minister, last night issued a statement publicly appologising for his "inappropriate action" during the incident in March.
However senior Conservatives say his apology is too little too late.
A Suffolk Tory MP who apologised after receiving a police caution for a domestic assault has been referred by the party to chief whip Michael Gove, a Conservative source has confirmed.
Former shadow police minister David Ruffley revealed in a statement that he had apologised to his former partner in relation to the incident in March, which led to him accepting a caution for common assault.
He said the woman had accepted his apology and stressed that he did not condone domestic violence "under any circumstances".
It is understood that Mr Gove wants to establish exactly what happened. He has the power to strip MPs of the party whip at Westminster if wrongdoing is found.
The party had previously responded to queries about the assault by saying that the issue "was dealt with at the time by the police", and the decision to refer Mr Ruffley to the chief whip for investigation was being seen in Westminster as a significant development.
Eleanor Rehahn of the Bury St Edmunds branch of the Fawcett Society said MP David Ruffley "definitely has to go."
She said the charity, which campaigns for women's equality, said the organisation had been horrified by the incident.
