Some minor flooding to riverside roads and footpaths is likely on Sunday.
High water levels may last for a few days, until the high tides at Great Yarmouth have passed. This is due to a natural tide locking effect.

Some minor flooding of riverside roads and footpaths is possible during Sunday.

This may cause some flooding to coastal roads and footpaths.
The tidal Rivers Bure, Ant, and Thurne
Flooding in this area is likely during Sunday due to high tidal waters moving up rivers from Great Yarmouth.
Expect to see high water levels around Potter Heigham, Wroxham boat yards, and Ferry Road in Horning.
The Norfolk coast from Eccles-on-Sea to, and including, Winterton-on-Sea
Flooding to coastal roads and footpaths is likely in this area between on Sunday.
High tides will mean flood gates will be closed restricting normal access to beaches around Eccles on Sea, and Sea Palling.
This alert covers Eccles on Sea, Whimpwell Green, Lessingham, Sea Palling, Waxham, Horsey, Somerton and Winterton-on-Sea.
