The agency said some minor flooding to riverside roads and footpaths was expected and high water levels may last until Thursday, November 5.
The agency said that was due to the natural tide locking effect of recent high tidal waters moving up the rivers from Great Yarmouth that restricts the normal drainage out to sea of the Broadland rivers at low tide.
The agency said: “We expect to see high water levels in Brundall and Reedham riverside areas. We are not currently expecting the situation to escalate, or to issue any further warning messages for this area at this time.
“Take care on waterside roads and footpaths and don’t put yourself in unnecessary danger.”
