The Met Office has updated its yellow weather warning for strong winds in the Anglia region on Friday.
Winds could gust at 50-70 mph especially near the coast.
The Met Office says the public should be aware of the risk of damage to trees, disruption to travel and possibly to power supplies.
The warning is in force from 0010 hrs to 0900 hrs on Friday 12 December
"There is the potential for gales, severe along some coasts, and accompanied by heavy rain, to spread across southern areas of England and Wales during the early hours of Friday, before easing during the morning. Gusts may reach 50 to 60 mph inland and perhaps around 70 mph in some exposed coastal districts."

Temperatures have peaked at just 3°C across large parts of the Anglia region this afternoon on what may be the coldest day since spring 2013.
The cold air over the east of England this afternoon has its origins from the near continent and it has been kept chilled underneath thick, low cloud.
Whilst today's temperatures are below the December daytime average of 7°C, it is not especially unusual to experience this kind of chilly, dull weather in winter. The fact that it is likely to be the coldest day since spring 2013 is more indicative of the consistently mild weather last winter than anything else.
As November ended as one of the warmest on record, 2014 is still on course to be the hottest ever in the Anglia region.Read the full story ›
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for fog across the Anglia region on Saturday night into the early hours of Sunday.
The warning is valid until 6am on Sunday 30 November 2014
The Met Office says: "Patches of fog already forming will become more widespread during the rest of Saturday evening and into the early hours of Sunday with the visibility falling to less than 100 metres in places.
"Later in the night the fog will tend to lift onto hills, before clearing from the northwest as the breeze increases."
Areas of fog will develop through Saturday evening under clear skies, particularly affecting southwest England and the West Country at first, then increasingly other parts of southern and eastern England, before thinning again later in the night as a weather front moves southeastwards bringing a band of cloud and some light rain or drizzle.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for persistent rain on Sunday which could cause localised flooding of land and roads in some areas.
The warning area covers parts of Norfolk, along with Suffolk and Essex and small areas of Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire.
The warning is in force from 3am until 9pm on Sunday 23 November 2014
The Met Office says: "Rain will be persistent and locally heavy through much of Sunday. Falling on saturated ground, it is likely to cause some surface water flooding in places before clearing eastwards. The public should be aware of this hazard."
A waving front will lie across the area for much of the day, with more than 20 mm expected in places. Given the wetter than average weather of late, these totals bring the risk of surface water.
