The white stuff has been falling on many areas of the county, having arrived first in the west.

There are already difficulties for drivers, with cars struggling to get traction up the hill on Golden Ball Street in Norwich.

The Met Office has issued a yellow snow warning across parts of England, including Norfolk.

Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.

North Norfolk Police is on the scene of a road traffic collision on the A1065.

A police spokesman said a vehicle rolled over on the road between Fakenham and East Raynham.

The police tweeted: "There's white stuff on the ground and we're already off to our first RTC (at South Raynham). Slow down, turn your lights on and drive to the conditions."

A WeatherQuest spokesman said the weather would be heavy for an hour, with decreasing chances of snow showers over the course of the evening.

The spokesman said: "It's a mix of weather with a bit of snow here, hail, thunder. It is a little mix of weather we have this afternoon. This shower is clearing to the east.

There might be a wet shower later in the evening, wet weather, showers and sleet with some frosty patches.

"Over the next couple of hours it will become a bit more settled. It will be cold and there might be frosty patches in the region tomorrow morning."

They said Tuesday's weather would remain similar to Monday, with some breezes and temperatures up to a maximum of 7C.
