A yellow weather warning remains in place across Suffolk as forecasters warn strong winds will continue to batter the region.
The warning was put in place Monday evening with Storm Gareth set to bring gusts of up to 50mph throughout Tuesday morning and into the afternoon.
With it the blustery weather will bring a sharp drop in temperature, with the mercury falling from a mild 10c to a chilly 3c as we move into the afternoon.
Weatherquest forecaster Dan Holley wrote on twitter: “Southwesterly winds will strengthen late tonight, with gusts of 40-50mph during Tuesday morning and early afternoon.
“A squally cold front will move eastwards across the region between 10am-2pm, after which both the winds and temperature will drop markedly.”
