Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket and Felixstowe will see wind speeds reach highs of 35mph. 

The worst of the weather will be overnight between Wednesday and Thursday.

Met Office chief meteorologist Steve Ramsdale said: “While the precise track and depth of Storm Agnes is still being determined, there’s a high likelihood of wind gusts around 50 to 60mph for some inland areas.

"Exposed coastal areas could see gusts of 65-75 mph with a small chance of a few places seeing around 80mph."
