Flurries of snow and widespread ice have hit Norfolk - and it's set to get even colder.

Met Office yellow weather warnings for snow and ice have been renewed for Friday night into Saturday morning. They have been in place over the previous two days for snow as temperatures across the county went sub zero.

Santon Downham near Thetford was once again the coldest in the region last night hitting lows of -6.5C.

Flurries of snow have hit parts of Norfolk throughout the day with a light dusting of snowfall in Dereham and Wymondham in the early hours of this morning as well as light dusting in Norwich at around 9am.

To mark the first day of meteorological winter, temperatures are set to remain low throughout the day with highs of 3C and temperatures predicted to fall to -4C tonight.

The cold weather tonight may create more problems as fog from the North Sea hits the region.

Temperatures are likely to go even lower on Saturday night.

A Met Office Spokeswoman said: "There will be widespread frosts and a chance of mists or freezing fog patches developing where skies clear over the coming nights and potentially into early next week as well."
