Warmer weather to replace stormy conditions in Suffolk this week

The storms have disappeared and Suffolk is basking in spring-like conditions today as a spell of high pressure brings calmer conditions.
Early last week Storm Gareth hit East Anglia, with high winds closing the A14 bridge on Wednesday before a second band of Atlantic weather again caused a closure last night.
But it looks like the storm is behind us and we can expect temperatures of around 15C or higher this week.
Highways England have said that there are “no further plans” to close the Orwell Bridge, which will come as welcome news to commuters, businesses and school parents.
Today we will see sunny spells with some scattered showers as the last of the blustery conditions move away.
Chris Bell, forecaster for East Anglian based Weatherquest, said: “It is looking like a mixture of sunshine and scattered showers on Sunday. It will stay dry for most people.
“There could be gusts up to 40mph locally but it’s more likely for wind speeds to be between 15-20mph with temperature reaching 9C.

“It will be a similar story overnight, with some showers about and there may be a chance of a light frost, especially to the west of Suffolk, with temperatures expected to be just below freezing.
“Next week, we will see the build up of high pressure which will bring calmer conditions. It will be mostly dry with warmer temperatures potentially reaching 15-17C.
“Wind will not be a problem for people next week.”
