Suffolk: Weather set to improve after county battered overnight

SUFFOLK: Winds of up to 55mph have battered the region overnight but the weather conditions are set to improve, according to forecasters.

Forecasters said the winds were now hailing from a north-westerly rather than a westerly direction, bringing with them a drop in temperature.

Sally Webb, a forecaster with MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said: “It will be quite blustery later but through the day the winds are weakening gradually. Overnight it should calm down a lot compared to how it has been.

“There are more north-westerly winds today, which is why they feel quite a bit chillier.”
