Cold snap is set to loosen its grip on Norfolk

Norfolk escaped the worst of the wintry weather overnight and it looks like most of the county has seen the last of the snow for now.

The first major snow fall of winter led to havoc across the county on Monday with school closures, car crashes and traffic jams.

But overnight there has been only a very light dusting of snow across Norfolk with forecasters saying the next couple of days will be dry and sunny.

Chris Bell, from UEA-based Weatherquest, said Norfolk missed the heavy snow showers which were expected last night and instead hit north east Lincolnshire.

He said: 'We had a bit of wet snow in Norfolk last night which melted readily on treated surfaces.

'Temperatures are around freezing at the moment but will be about two or three degrees later. The winds are picking up so it could feel colder due to the wind chill factor.
