The forecast shows that areas of the Suffolk coast, including Southwold, Lowestoft and Aldeburgh, will see wind speeds of between 40mph and 42mph between 12pm and 9pm today. 

A spokesman for the Met Office said: "Suffolk will have already seen some rain this morning with a front that’s associated with Storm Debi helping to bring this rain.

"It may also be a bit breezy, especially on immediate coastlines, in what is a residual impact from Debi moving from west to east further north through the day today.

"Tuesday will see the introduction of some further rainfall in the day for Suffolk, with some possible heavy downpours at times.

"While Wednesday would remain largely dry, there’s a signal for some possible further winds and rain from Thursday, though details are uncertain at this point."

According to The AA, wind speeds of more than 30mph can be considered dangerous, and passengers should try to avoid driving, especially on exposed roads.
