It has been a wet start for most people in Suffolk and north Essex this morning, however this is due to clear and be replaced by gusts of wind.
According to Norwich-based forecasters Weatherquest, the region can expect blustery winds during the afternoon commute.
Expert Chris Bell said: “Today is going to be on the chilly side with temperatures of 12C-13C throughout East Anglia.
“We are then likely to see some blustery wind gusts of 40mph during drive time, so from 4pm-7pm.”
This could have a knock on effect for many commuters in Ipswich who use the Orwell Bridge.

However, the bridge doesn’t usually shut unless wind speed reaches 50mph as a cross wind, or when they hit 60mph for east/west winds.
The wet start we have seen today is expected to clear by around 10am, resulting in most of Suffolk and north Essex being dry.
