Destructive gale-force winds will be replaced with freezing temperatures across Norfolk in the coming days.
Gusts of up to 83mph battered parts of the county from around 5am to 9am today (Thursday, January 18), causing widespread damage.
While the wind has now died down, Norwich-based forecaster Weatherquest said frosty temperatures are on the way.
Adam Dury, forecaster, said the mercury is expected to drop to -2C on Friday morning, with winds picking up to 30mph.
Temperatures will increase slightly in the afternoon to 4C to 5C and there is a chance of showers.
Saturday is forecast to get off to an even colder start, with temperatures dropping to -3C.
Today (Thursday), will be a mostly dry day, but with a chance of showers in the afternoon.
As of 10am, wind speeds across the county had dropped to 40mph to 45mph, Mr Dury said.
