There were flurries of snow across Norfolk this morning and forecasters have predicted that the wintry weather could continue for the next couple of days.

Norwich-based forecaster Weatherquest said there was a chance that snow showers could persist in the county this afternoon with slightly heavier showers throughout the night.

The snow this afternoon is unlikely to settle but parts of the county could see a covering tonight.

James Wilby, forecaster, said: 'There will be drier air tonight and with the cold temperatures there is a higher chance that we will see some snow showers in Norfolk.

'It will probably only be a dusting but there is the possibility that 1cm could settle on the ground.'

Meanwhile, there is a risk of ice and frost tomorrow morning which could cause some problems on the county's roads.

Mr Wilby said: 'If there is a bit of rain and the roads are damp when the temperatures drop we could end up seeing some icy conditions on the roads which is something to watch out for.'
