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.
It will be a dry and warm night with some clear spells and light winds. Lows of 15 deg C (59 deg F).
Tuesday was the hottest day of 2016 so far with temperatures in the Anglia region climbing close to 32°C.
Plentiful rain and a lack of sunshine made June 2016 one of the wettest and dullest ever in East Anglia.
