Flood alerts have been issued for large parts of the Suffolk coast, stretching from Lowestoft down to Bawdsey.
The flood alert is in force from 10.15am-2.15pm on Thursday, November 19 with flooding to coastal roads and footpaths possible due to high tides.
Tides are expected to be higher than usual due to a rain forecast coinciding with the predicted high tide.
High water levels are expected in Lake Lothing in Lowestoft and down the Suffolk coast, which may impact access points on beaches.
The Environment Agency has warned people to take care on coastal footpaths and roads and to not put themselves in any unnecessary danger.
