Some parts of the region could end April with a month’s worth of rain in just 30 hours.

With Norfolk and Suffolk preparing itself for heavy downpours over the next few days, the Environment Agency in East Anglia issued a warning on Twitter urging people to stay safe.

They said: “We urge people to stay safe on the coast – take extreme care on coastal paths and promenades, and don’t put yourself in unnecessary danger trying to take ‘seilfies’.”

Flood warnings have been issued in parts of Norfolk and Suffolk.

Dan Holley, forecaster at Weatherquest, said that some parts of the region began April with a month’s worth of rain in four days - and could end it with the same amount in just 30 hours.

He said rain is expected to start on Sunday afternoon and continue until Tuesday morning.

East of the M11, he said, there would be 30 to 40mm.
