Storm Brian to bring gusts of 50mph to Norfolk coast this weekend
People living along Norfolk's coast are warned to expect gusts of up to 50mph this weekend.
Storm Brian is expected to bring strong winds on Saturday and Sunday to the county as it sweeps across the UK.
Norwich-based forecaster Weatherquest said Norfolk's east-facing coast is likely to get the worst of the weather.
The Met Office has also issued a yellow weather warning for the county between 4am on Saturday and midnight.
Phil Garner, from Weatherquest, said Saturday will begin with a 'reasonably' bright start.
However, showers and strong winds are forecast for much of the afternoon.
He said: 'The east-facing coast could well see the strongest winds. Gusts could get up to 45mph to 50mph on Saturday evening.'
