Snow is still expected to return to Norfolk this afternoon, with 2-4cm expected to settle in some areas, with less around the coast.

Some readers reported snow falls in Long Stratton and Coston just after 3pm.

Phil Garner, Weather Quest forecaster at its University of East Anglia base this weekend, said Essex and Suffolk had already had snow today, and it had so far reached as far north as Lakenheath.

He said the snow should leave the last areas by about 3am tomorrow, but he did not anticipate a repeat of the disruption caused at the peak of the bad weather last week.

He said: “Where there has been a degree of treatment any snow should not accumulate too much so there should not be too much disruption tomorrow morning, but it’s always hard to tell with snow.”

He said traffic patterns would affect how effective road gritting will be.

  • Albert - Spot on. None was forecast for Yarmouth the other night but we got a packet. BBC weather site is forecasting heavy rain at 0300hours for the coast. We shall see. Since the forecasting for local BBC radio and tv moved to London its been invariably wrong. That`s what happens I suppose when you make cuts. Quality of service goes down the pan.
