A yellow weather warning has been issued for Norfolk by the Met Office.
Strong winds from Storm Malik are forecast from Sunday, January 29, to Monday, January 31.
The Met Office has said that the winds will likely cause some travel disruption and could generate large and dangerous waves around the coast.
The warning is in place for most of the county.
Power lines and mobile phone coverage could be affected by the strong winds, according to the forecaster.
Large and dangerous waves at the coast could be "a danger to life" and lead to injuries due to the waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.
Storm Malik will be sweeping in from Denmark and winds are expected to reach up to 80mph in coastal areas, but more widely 60mph, as it tracks eastward towards Denmark.
