Temperatures could reach as low as -6c in parts of Norfolk as sharp frosts are set to hit the county.

The cold snap will arrive overnight with rural areas experiencing the lowest temperatures.

The forecast of frost follows yellow weather warnings of snow for northern parts of England and Scotland.

A spokesman for Weatherquest said: "Tonight is set to be pretty cold with one or two isolated showers to the north east.

"Widespread sharp frost is expected tomorrow morning with rural spots reaching lows of -6c but more widely temperatures will be as low as -3c.

"It will be dry and sunny throughout the day with temperatures slowly lifting to highs of 3-4c and there may be a band of rain moving across the region into the evening.

"By Friday, the rain should clear by the morning but there will be another frosty start with temperatures close to freezing. Blustery showers are expected later in the day with highs of 4-5c.
