Parts of Norfolk and Suffolk could experience gale force winds tonight and tomorrow morning.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for wind for East Anglia and the majority of England between 9pm tonight and 11am tomorrow.

Wind speeds could reach between 50-60mph early tomorrow morning and between 70-75mph in coastal areas.

The Met Office said: “During Wednesday night and into Thursday there is the potential for gusts of 60-70mph quite widely and a small chance of winds reaching 80mph in places.

“The location of the most damaging winds is still uncertain, although parts of northwest England and north Wales currently look most likely.

“The strongest winds may then transfer to eastern parts of England by the morning. Some southern parts could still miss the worst of the conditions. Along with the strong winds a spell of heavy rain can also be expected, which could also be combined with a temporary thaw of lying snow in the north, leading to some surface water flooding in places.”
