Strong winds are expected to continue to batter parts of Suffolk and north Essex.
Weather experts predict that gusts of 40mph-45mph will hit the region today before easing on Wednesday and Thursday and picking up again slightly on Friday.
Fred Best from the East Anglian-based weather forecasters Weatherquest said: "Today will be a rather breezy day with an area of thick cloud at first which bring the risk of a few spots of drizzle, but generally it will be a dry day with some sunshine breaking through for the afternoon.
"The winds turn fresher and stronger later and it will feel mild with highs of 13C.
"Tonight, it will stay dry but quite breezy throughout the evening with clear spells before thickening cloud, which brings the risk of some showery rain later in the night.
"Tomorrow will remain cloudy and quite mild with a few spells of rain in central and eastern parts of the region at first before turning drier with some brighter spells later.
"Thursday will be a dry day with sunny spells and variable amounts of cloud with a few isolated spots of drizzle possible.
