Wintry showers could be on their way this weekend, forecasters have predicted.

Dan Holley, a forecaster at UEA-based Weatherquest, said Sunday is the most likely day for the weather and that the north and east of Norfolk were most likely to see the showers.

He said: “From Saturday the north westerly wind will effectively be coming from the Arctic, much as we have seen for the last two weekends.

“On Saturday we won’t see that many wintry showers because the winds are north westerly so that means for the bulk of the county they are coming off the land [and the showers are generated by the winds crossing the sea].

“Much of Saturday will be dry, then the winds shift to northerly and start coming more from the North Sea, so Sunday has the greatest risk of showers by the afternoon and evening.

“They could be heavy and there might be some hail. They will mainly be in the north and east of the county.”

He said temperatures could reach 12 degrees Celsius on Saturday but on Sunday the top temperature is likely to be only seven or eight degrees Celsius.

“The average for this time of year is about 11 degrees Celsius so the temperatures are below average, and the wind chill will make it feel more like two or three degrees Celsius.”
