However, local meteorologist Dan Holley has said the chance of snow in Norfolk and Suffolk will depend on the exact track of the low pressure this weekend.

He tweeted: 'There is the risk of a spell of rain, sleet & snow across the region on Sunday - this very much depends on the exact track of the low pressure responsible, and the phasing with colder air on its northern flank. Still some uncertainty - watch this space.'
