The Environment Agency has put in place five flood warnings and 25 flood alerts which warn that flooding is possible. The warnings come amid high spring tides and further bursts of rainfall across the region over the next few days.

Flood warnings have been issued for the North Sea coast at Easington and Kilnsea, Hornsea, the Essex coast at Coalhouse Fort and surrounding marshland, the north Norfolk coast at Salthouse and east Cley and at Wells Quay.

The Environment Agency has stated that all of the flood warnings should be removed later on Tuesday morning.

Flooding is expected in the affected areas from the early hours until approximately 9:00am or 10:00am (BST).

The Environment Agency said: “As a result of high spring tides, tide levels will be at their highest tomorrow morning, Tuesday 13/09/2022.

“After this tide, tidal levels will reduce, and no further impacts are expected. We will continue to monitor levels and forecasts closely and will re-issue this Flood Warning if necessary.”

The public have been warned to stay away from beaches, coastal footpaths and roads and promenades.

Over the next few days temperatures are set to remain relatively pleasant across the country with highs of 22C on Wednesday.

Temperatures at night will dip to the low teens and in some areas will even see single digits.

While the majority of areas will be dry with sunny spells, there will be some light showers in northern and western Scotland.

The Met Office also forecasts spells of heavy rain across the Southern region of the UK with increased cloud cover.

Rain is expected to continue throughout Tuesday with “heavy bursts likely” in the far south, according to the Met Office.

The rest of the week is set to see temperatures gradually lower as the summer season draws to a close.

By the end of the month it is thought that there will be the breakdown of high pressure which will see unsettled weather fronts move in with windier and wetter weather in the north.
