As Storm Babet brought flooding and disruption to Norfolk, some places experienced a record-breaking month of rainfall. 

Dan Holley, a meteorologist at Norwich-based WeatherQuest, revealed in a post on X, formerly Twitter, the areas of East Anglia that had their wettest October on record in 2023. 

In Norfolk, the locations were the seaside town of Cromer and Houghton Hall, near Fakenham.

Records were also set in Suffolk at Brooms Barn, Cavendish, Charsfield, Santon Downham and Wattisham.



The Cambridgeshire locations were the Cambridge NIAB (National Institute of Agricultural Botany) and Wittering.

Despite East Anglia having "near-average sunshine" last month, it was the wettest October overall for the region since 2000. 

Storm Babet caused disruption across Norfolk, with some areas still dealing with the impact a fortnight on, and Storm Ciarán got November off to a rainy and windy start.
