Experts at Meteogroup warned that a big change in temperature would be felt. Forecaster Andy Ratcliffe said: ‘The band of snow, sleet and rain is moving between East Anglia and Lancashire today, with most snow falling across Norfolk today. ‘Overnight everywhere will be very cold tonight with a brisk easterly wind and some scattered snow storms, though those areas are unlikely to get any significant accumulations. ‘The most frequent snow storms will be towards the north-east coast and in the southern counties where there is a risk of more persistent snow and could reach a couple of centimetres.’ He added that temperatures had already dropped to -2 in Scotland overnight.
