The start of the month yesterdaybegan with heavy rain and blustering winds, and although weather experts believe it will not be as bad this week, showers and a drop in temperature is expected.
Around 10 to 15mm of rain fell in Suffolk yesterday and gusts were up to 40mph because of an area of low pressure sweeping across from the south west of the UK.
Police did not receive any reports of weather-related collisions on the county's roads however there were a few incidents of trees blocking roads.
A spokesman for Weatherquest said: 'There was a very deep area of low pressure coming from the south west. It cleared by the afternoon.
'This week will be a much more unsettled story. It will not be quite as wet or windy as it has been. It will stay blustery and will be a bit cooler than we have been used to, although temperatures will be average for this time of year.
