But from later this morning conditions are set to improve with sunny spells developing as the sleet clears southwards. However, it will remain cold and windy with gales along the Norfolk coast.

Tonight our area is likely to stay dry and clear as winds ease, though further wintry showers will affect the coast where it will stay very windy. Feeling bitterly cold. And we can expect to wake up tomorrow to a sharp frost.
