Snow had a second go this lunchtime as long-awaited flurries hit the north Norfolk coast.

After two days of warnings, the district was braced to deal with up to 8cm of snow yesterday.

But, despite a couple of inches falling in the early evening in parts of the area, including Cromer and other parts of the coast, by this morning much of it had melted away.

The skies darkened and the snow returned on the coast at about 11.45am, but within an hour the 2cm had largely melted away.

There was more significant snowfall in the west of the patch, in villages beyond Holt.

Across Norfolk, 59 schools are closed today. But they are mainly in west and central Norfolk, with just the Douglas Bader Short Stay School at Coltishall and Corpusty Primary affected in the North Norfolk News area.

The weather is expected to remain close to freezing today, with possible snow flurries this afternoon.
