The Met office has issued a yellow severe weather warning and told people to stay 'weather aware' as gusts of up to 75mph blow through the region.
Norfolk Police tweeted this morning that high winds have brought trees down across the county and warned people to drive carefully and leave time to react to hazards.
The windy weather has also caused problems for those travelling by train this morning as Greater Anglia has announced the 11:29, 12:29 and 13:29 services from Diss to Norwich are cancelled because of overhead line problems.
Travellers are being advised that advance ticket holders may use alternative trains. And all other ticket restrictions are lifted for the remainder of the day.
Fallen trees are also causing chaos for commuters today with several road closures across Norfolk.
BBC Norfolk travel updates say there's a tree partly blocking the road between Cawston and Reepham.
Two trees have fallen down on the Felthorpe Road but Norfolk travel said it is passable with care.
