The first snow flakes of the New Year fell in Norwich this morning - but it’s not here to stay.
Commuters this morning may have spotted the first snow fall of the year as they drove to work in Norwich.
The wintery dust fell for just a few minutes towards Thickthorn Roundabout but did not settle.
This time last year Norfolk was still covered with an icy sheet, but Steve Western, forecaster at Weatherquest, said, with the temperature just above freezing, the snow didn’t land.
He said: “We may see a few more flakes today and tomorrow but it won’t be anything special.
“We have some showers coming and they might be a little bit wintery at times - there’s a chance of some sleet mixed with rain.”
