Flood warnings have been issued for parts of Woodbridge and Felixstowe with high water levels expected.
The Environment Agency's warning for the River Deben is in place between 11am and 3pm, with homes close to the riverbank likely to be at risk of flooding.
There is also a warning in place for Felixstowe Ferry and Bawdsey Quay covering the same time.
Areas around Martlesham Bridge, and along the river at Waldringfield and Methersgate Quay have also been told to expect flooding.
A wider flood alert has been issued along the Suffolk coast from Lowestoft to Bawdsey between 9.30am and 11.30am.
Minor flooding to coastal roads and footpaths is likely during this time and the Environment Agency is urging people not to put themselves in unnecessary danger.
The alert comes after a flood warning was issued for Southwold, which sea levels expected to be 2.16m higher than normal.
Bosses at the Harbour Inn in Southwold said the pub is closed today, with around 5-10cm of water expected in the pub.
