A weather warning for snow remains in place for Norfolk today.

Forecasters in Norwich say there is a chance some parts of Norfolk could see snow this morning but any accumulations are likely to be small.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning of snow which covers much of the country, including for Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

The warning is in place until midday today.

The Met Office said: "Rain and hill snow will move eastwards late Wednesday evening and during the early hours of Thursday."
They said it would move from the west to the east and may turn to sleet and snow over parts of the Midlands, East Anglia and the northern Home Counties.

They said: "Accumulations at these low-levels will be mostly small, especially on roads, but a centimetre or so is possible in one or two places.

"Rain, sleet and snow will quickly clear southeastwards by late morning and any snow at lower levels will soon thaw."

Any snow in Norfolk is likely to be on higher ground and during Thursday morning.

Some travel disruption is possible in areas where snow falls.

The forecast is for dry and sunny conditions on Thursday afternoon.

Thursday night is set to be cold and frosty and on Friday the forecast is for wind and rain.
