East of England
A very windy start, with gales and severe gales. These strongest along the coast, before easing away east. A cold feeling day follows, with sunny intervals, but also occasional showers possible, perhaps with hail or sleet.
A largely clear and cold night, leading to a widespread frost. Whilst the odd shower cannot be completely ruled it should remain dry.

Very strong winds will affect parts of the UK early on Thursday. The strongest winds are expected to transfer eastwards across the warning area, before clearing by mid-morning.

Power cuts may occur, and there is the potential for other services, such as mobile phone coverage, to be affected. Injuries and danger to life from flying debris are possible, along with some damage to buildings.In addition, large waves are expected to affect some western coasts with beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.
This is an update to the warning, to increase the southward extent.
