Parts of Norfolk may see a few centimetres of snow over the weekend while other areas of the county may miss out on the white stuff altogether, forecasters are predicting.
Jim Bacon, a forecaster at UEA-based Weatherquest, said: “It’s going to be cold throughout the weekend into next week.
“We are going to have very little activity going on right over here during today but later today there will be a little bit more sleet and snow.
“Some places tomorrow may start off with a few centimetres of snow. The Fens, the western parts of Norfolk, may have a couple of centimetres while nearer the east coast little if any snow, possibly a light dusting.
“As we go through tomorrow we will get perhaps another four or five centimetres on the borders of Norfolk and Cambridgeshire and West Suffolk, and in the east of Norfolk practically nothing.”
He said it would be cold right the way through the weekend, gradually becoming dryer and perhaps a little bit brighter but still with a strong wind.
Temperatures over the weekend are likely to be two or three degrees Celsius, and rising to four or five degrees Celsius by the middle part of next week.
Mr Bacon said it was not unusual to have cold weather at this time of year - adding that in the 1970s there was instance of snow in June.
