Flurries of snow have hit Norfolk today amid a cold front and more wintry showers are on the way.

The Met Office and the UK Health Security Agency have issued a cold-weather alert for Norfolk until Friday as temperatures are set to plummet. 

Parts of Norfolk could see more snowfall overnight ahead of a cool and largely dry week.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: "The chance of snow is there because of the cold air we’ve got at the moment, with temperatures likely dropping below 0C overnight.

"Low temperatures are forecast throughout the coming days as the county will only see daytime highs of 6C.

"It’ll remain cool and largely dry through much of the week in Norfolk, with a few sporadic showers possible later in the week.

"Despite the cold air, there’s also likely to be some brighter interludes with some sunshine likely at times, something that has been in short supply in recent weeks."

It comes after weeks of wet and stormy weather and several flood warnings and alerts remain in place across Norfolk and Waveney.
