Suffolk: More bad weather ahead

DRIVERS across the region have faced horrendous conditions for much of today thanks to a second day of awful autumn weather.

High winds and persistent downpours meant the roads were covered in large puddles, which all added to the rush hour misery for motorists on many main routes.

John Law, a forecaster for meteorological experts WeatherQuest, said conditions tomorrow would be drier but it was an unsettled picture for the rest of the week.

He said: “It has been very wet and windy but it will improve. A brief ridge of high pressure is coming over from the west, which will give some respite from the stronger winds and some drier weather as well.

“There will still be some showers for Suffolk, particularly for the coastal areas, but it should improve.

You may also want to watch:

“However, things will turn very unsettled again into Thursday. Winds will pick up again and there will be some heavy spots of rain but it looks like it will be fast-moving, so the afternoon looks a little drier.”

He also warned of “blustery” conditions later in the week, but it all added up to the normal November weather.
