This morning, the sea at Jaywick in Essex was calm.
No sign there had been any threat from the waves.
They were packing up at the local reception centre where around
Jaywick was one of the highest risk areas along the east coast,
with a heavy presence last night from police, fire
They deserve a medal for what they have done.
We popped out yesterday and because they couldn't get a hold

Although widespread flooding didn't happen overnight,
the East Anglian coast still took a battering.
Hundreds of coastal communities will be feeling very relieved.

For some lucky ones we've had blue sky and sunshine today, for others,

of freezing and the Met office has a yellow weather warning in place
for further snow showers, particularly towards the east
of the region but also for ice as well.
As the temperature drops down to zero, maybe

Minimum temperatures, as I mentioned, down to around zero.
Now that rain is going to push through tomorrow morning.
