The clocks have gone forward and after a bitterly cold winter, milder conditions are on the way as Norfolk and Waveney enters British Summer Time.

But with many people looking to the Easter bank holiday weekend, there was some concern the snow could return.

Sunny spells will see temperatures hit 12C tomorrow before a band of rain overnight brings more mild conditions and highs of 13C on Tuesday.

Another band of rain on Wednesday will keep the thermometer at 8C before temperatures dip to freezing overnight and into Thursday.

Good Friday will bring long spells of rain which will continue into Saturday with it feeling mild.

Easter Sunday will feel cooler but the region is unlikely to see any snow.

Forecaster Adam Dury said: “There is some uncertainty over how cold it may be but Northern England and Wales have the highest chance of seeing snow.”
