A yellow weather warning for wind is in place across Norfolk, Suffolk and parts of Cambridgeshire.
Gusts could reach and exceed 50mph over the course of Friday, especially on coasts and in other open areas.
The Met Office has warned tree branches could possibly come down over the course of the day, along with possible damage to weaker outdoor structures.
Sea fronts are set to be affected by large waves and spray, while delays to some modes of public transport are "likely", the UK's national weather service added.
The weather warning is set to remain in place until 9pm.

Temperatures could reach 12 degrees Celsius, but it's likely to feel more like seven or eight degrees due to the winds.

And the same is true until later on Sunday, when more rain is due to arrive ahead of a much wetter looking Monday.
