Temperatures plunged in parts of Norfolk overnight and forecasters are predicting a fresh dusting of snow this evening - but milder weather is on its way.

Phil Garner, a forecaster at UEA-based WeatherQuest, said that overnight parts of the region, including Marham, dropped to minus eight degrees Celsius - but, while there is also likely to be more snow tonight, he said there would be milder temperatures in the coming days.

He said: “We are starting to see a slow transition through to something a bit milder.

“We are expecting outbreaks of rain, snow and sleet through the overnight period tonight, but the snow will be turning to rain towards the end of the night.”

He said there could be between 2cm and 6cm of snow.

“People will see a fresh covering of snow when they wake up on Saturday morning,” he said.

He said temperatures would be between two and four degrees Celsius on Saturday, and a band of rain predicted for Saturday night would bring milder air for Sunday.

  • Don't put your thermals away yet as mid-Feb looks as if it could be all white again.

  • Fracking El,nobody knows what mid February 'looks like' unless they've gone there in a time machine.Absolutely,there is every chance that there could be harsh conditions,it is still the heart of winter after all.But please don't take any long range forecasts from the Met office the least bit seriously.They are absolutely hopeless at accurate forecasts even three or four days ahead,let alone weeks ahead.I will say that it will be 6 degrees celcius on February 15th,and nobody can forecast it any better than that.It really is that random.

  • If you look on the met office web site they have a forecast in graphics, a forecast in text, and weather warnings. More often than not they are all different. I made the mistake of asking which forecast I should believe, I had a huge e mail in return that just made pathetic excuses. They are not fit for purpose.

  • You cannot have 'milder temperatures' , you may have higher or lower temperatures , but 'milder temperatures' is just poor english.
