Essex County Fire and Rescue Service is advising residents to be prepared and make sure property and garden furniture is well secured ahead of the storm.
David Walpole, Group Manager, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, said:
"Take some time to clear your gardens from anything left from the summer months and secure anything that might blow away. Loose objects such as your bins, plant pots, garden furniture and trampolines should all be moved inside, turned upside down or secured to the ground with tent pegs. Also lock all doors and windows of sheds, garages and outbuildings to keep them safe.
"We are also urging Essex residents to only travel if necessary and check in on any vulnerable neighbours and family members to make sure they are safe."
