Drivers had to fish out their windscreen scrapers this morning - and take a bit of extra care on the roads - as temperatures plunged overnight.
The region woke to sub-zero temperatures and a widespread frost, with the mercury plummeting as low as -3 degrees celsius in Thetford and -2 degrees celsius in King’s Lynn.
On Sunday morning Norfolk County Council tweeted that it would be sending gritters out on county routes in the early hours for the first gritting run of this autumn/winter.
The Met Office said today will be “dry, cold and mostly sunny with light winds” with a maximum temperature of 10C.
Tuesday morning is set to be “cloudy and rather dry” with “rain moving east later”.
Cloud and rain should clear eastwards during Wednesday with sunshine on Thursday.
