Norfolk will be spared the worst of Storm Ali today (September 19), as it sweeps in this afternoon across the UK.
Norwich-based forecaster Weatherquest has said that while not much rain will fall, the county will experience some strong winds.
“Our part of the world is expecting to see some winds this afternoon of maybe 50 to 55 mph,” forecaster Chris Bell said.
He said that it was “already quite blustery yesterday” but that it will be “windier” today.
“There will not be much rain involved. There might be a brief period of rain in the early evening,” Mr Bell said.
The fiercest of Storm Ali’s winds will hit northwest Ireland and western Scotland. Winds of 90 mph have already been recorded off the coast of Ireland.
An amber weather warning has been in force since 08:00 BST in Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern England.
Weatherquest is located in the University of East Anglia in Norwich.
