Storm Agnes is set to batter the UK with strong winds and heavy rain this week.
Agnes, the first named storm of the season, will affect western regions of the UK and Ireland on Wednesday with the strongest winds expected on the Irish Sea coasts.
Gusts of up to 80mph are possible in some places with inland areas forecast to see gusts of 50mph to 60mph.
Coastal areas of Norfolk have been forecast winds of 50mph on Wednesday night and early Thursday morning.
Yellow weather warnings for rain have been issued for parts of Scotland between 9pm on Wednesday and 6am on Thursday, while a yellow warning for wind covers much of the UK except the South East between noon on Wednesday and 7am on Thursday.
There is currently no weather warning in place for Norfolk but the Met Office has said this could change.
What is the detailed forecast for Storm Agnes?
9am on Wednesday:
Met Office forecasts show that Storm Agnes will start to arrive over Ireland at around 9am and continue sweeping in a north-easterly direction.
At its centre, Agnes' gusts will be upwards of 100mph.
3pm on Wednesday:
Although Norfolk won't be directly hit by Agnes, it will experience wind speeds in the mid-20s mph by 3pm.
The average wind speed for Norfolk in September is 8mph.
By this time, heavy rain will be hitting the west and north west of the UK but Norfolk should avoid the showers.
6pm on Wednesday:
By 6pm, noticeable gusts will be sweeping across parts of the UK.
Gusts of almost 80mph will hit parts of north Wales while Norfolk will face winds between 26mph and 32mph.
9pm on Wednesday:
By 9pm, Wells-next-the-sea will experience gusts of 33mph and further inland Norwich will feel 29mph winds.
This is more than 20mph above the average for this time of year.
Storm Agnes should peak at midnight going into Thursday.
In Norfolk, offshore winds will hit 50mph and north west Norfolk will experience winds of up to 45mph.
EAST: The strongest winds from #StormAgnes in this region will be during Wednesday evening and night, with gusts of 35-45mph — generally strongest in the north and west 🍃
Most of the frontal rain will decay before reaching the region, so very little rainfall is expected either. pic.twitter.com/Nz0O7s3M6P

Until 7am on Thursday:
As the night progresses the winds should calm.
