High winds and heavy rain showers are predicted to continue this week, putting a dampener on outdoor gatherings.
Fred Best, forecaster from Norwich-based Weatherquest, said winds were expected to be the strongest this afternoon and evening with gusts getting between 40 and 45mph in some parts.
He said: "On Tuesday it is going to become quite windy with longer spells of rain going into the evening. There is the potential for heavy rain."
Mr Best added Wednesday, Thursday and Friday could see sunny periods but it would be cloudy with isolated showers.
He said heavy showers were also predicted for Wednesday afternoon.
Mr Best said the heavier gusts on Saturday ranging from 40-45mph would be more common around the coastal areas and temperatures would increase to about 15 and 16C.
