A weather warning has been issued for parts of the region for the end of the Easter weekend.

The Met Office has issued the yellow warning for snow in areas of Norfolk and Suffolk from midnight on Monday, April 2 and midnight on Tuesday, April 3.

While the majority of the region’s coast is not covered by the warning, the west and south west of Norfolk are, including areas in west Norwich.

The Met Office said: “As a weather system moves in from the south and comes up against cold air over the UK, there is the chance that rain could turn to heavy snow in places.

“Several cm of snow are possible, especially over hills, with drifting in strong winds. There is also the possibility of a few cm of wet snow gathering at lower levels.

“At present the extent and amounts of any snow are very uncertain, and it is quite possible that snow might not be too disruptive.”

Local forecasters have, over the last few days, said that snow is unlikely over the Easter weekend, and that, if there are showers, it not expected to settle.
