High winds are predicted to blow across Norfolk and Suffolk tonight and tomorrow morning.

A band of rain will move in from the west which will turn into “strong blustery” conditions overnight, particularly in exposed coastal areas, according to Phil Garner from Norwich-based Weatherquest.

Winds could reach between 50mph and 55mph between 9pm tonight and midday tomorrow.

Temperatures will not get below 9C.

Mr Garner said: “Stay in touch with the weather forecast as the winds are becoming quite strong.”

He warned some trees could be damaged because of the weather.

Despite being close to gale-force wind speeds, the predicted 50mph-55mph gusts are not unusual for this time of year, Mr Garner added.
