A yellow weather warning for high winds has been issued by the Met Office for Essex and Suffolk across the weekend.
Westerly or southwesterly winds will develop from tomorrow morning, with gusts reaching 60mph on exposed coastlines and 50-55mph inland.
The blustery weekend will continue into Sunday, when gusts could reach 70mph on the west coast and 60mph elsewhere in the country.
Forecasters have put the warning in place from 9am Saturday, until 6pm Sunday.
The weather is being caused by a low pressure system moving eastwards across the UK, followed by a second front on Sunday which will further strengthen the winds.
This yellow warning has been issued as there is a high likelihood of the strong winds coming, though the impact is not expected by forecasters to be very severe. However the warning may be updated over the weekend as the second front develops.
