Norwich experienced a light dusting of snow this morning as Norfolk braced for one of the coldest week’s this winter.

Temperatures across the region are set to plunge as commuters have been warned to brace themselves for icy conditions on the roads.

Weatherquest forecaster Richard Jones said isolated showers were possible through the morning with further chances of light snow falls.

He said: “There are chances of isolated showers this afternoon but it will get drier into the evening with maximum temperatures of 3C to 4C.

“It’s colder than average for this time of the year.”

He said Tuesday would get off to a frosty start with a risk of ice across the county.

“Showers are more likely along the north Norfolk coast on Tuesday while inland areas are likely to remain largely dry.

“It will remain cold with highs expected to only reach 3C to 4C.”

The cold weather is set to remain into Wednesday with another frosty start thanks to lows of around -2C to -3C.

“Wintery showers are possible on Wednesday with dustings of snow across Norfolk,” said Mr Jones.

“It will become largely drier through the day with sunny spells, but highs will still only reach around 4C or 5C.”

Thursday will remain cold in the morning but a front will move in from the west during the day bringing the possibility of rain or sleet. Lows are forecast to be -2C or -3C with the highs expected to reach 5C or 6C.

“Friday may not be as cold as the front lingers across the region and there will be a risk of rain and sleet in places,” said Mr Jones.

“It’s looking like the weekend will be a bit milder with temperatures back to 6C to 7C which is average for this time of the year.”
