Storm Ciarán is set to hit the county with high winds and heavy rainfall this week. 

The county will start to see the impact of the storm on Wednesday evening (November 1) heading into Thursday morning (November 2). 

A yellow weather warning for wind is in place from 9pm on Wednesday until midnight on Thursday. 

The Met Office has warned that strong winds could reach up to 70mph in more exposed coastal areas of Suffolk and up to 60mph further inland. 

Thursday will also see heavy rainfall which will lessen heading into the weekend with lighter showers.

Stephen Dixon, a spokesperson for the Met Office, said: "Given how saturated the land is following Storm Babet this isn't the most welcome rainfall. 

"These will be particularly strong winds even for the time of year.

"This will likely be a disruptive spell of weather."

He added that there is a risk of trees falling as well as power cuts and travel disruption over the next few days. 

The storm will weaken on Friday as it moves into the North Sea although the weather will remain "unsettled".
