The experts at Weatherquest say it is likely to be dry but a bit windy across Suffolk and north Essex into the evening with “a small chance” of a blustery shower passing through.

According to Chris Bell, a lead forecaster at Weatherquest, the general pattern for weather this week is breezy and unsettled with rain at times.

Today’s winds, that reached speeds of 44mph in Suffolk and saw the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge at Dartford closed for a short time as a precaution, have now died down. But they are expected to pick up after midnight and into tomorrow morning with rain forecast for later into the day.

As for News Years Day, it is expected to start off dry and then become wet and windy into the afternoon.

“The best of the weather will be before midday,” said Mr Bell, who forecast winds could reach up to 45mph later on into January 1 2014.

  • Does it matter if its a dry night? No one has gathered outside the town hall to see the new year in for years! Shame really. Maybe Ipswich Central and our Labour council might want to think about that on 31 December 2014 ...
