Norfolk weather: Fog descends as snow and ice warnings continue

Areas with snow on the ground, especially melting snow, will get the brunt of the ice, the weather office warned.

A Met Office yellow weather warning is in place from 1pm today until 9pm tomorrow.

A spokeswoman said: "Snow showers over northern Scotland and eastern England will also start to affect parts of western United Kingdom during Friday evening and night".

The alert comes after as much as 14cm of snow wreaked havoc in the south-west on Thursday.

Snowfall and icy conditions are expected to cause widespread travel disruption on Friday morning after temperatures plummeted as low as minus 15.4C (4.3F) overnight.

Airports were also hit by the freezing weather, with Bristol Airport suspending flights until 8am while the runway was cleared.

Gatwick Airport is not experiencing any cancellations, Luton and London City are experiencing some delays, and Stansted and Southend are operating as normal.

This affects Central, Tayside & Fife, East Midlands, East of England, Grampian, Highlands & Eilean Siar, North East England, Northern Ireland, Orkney & Shetland, SW Scotland, Lothian Borders, Wales and Yorkshire & Humber.

Temperature in parts of Aberdeenshire, in Scotland hit -14.5C, the lowest temperature recorded anywhere in the United Kingdom since 2012.

The Met Office said rain and snow were expected to move into the United Kingdom from the southwest from Thursday and through Friday with icy patches forming, but that snow amounts would "vary markedly" across England and Wales.

There is a chance of sleet and snow which will spread eastwards throughout the day.

Around 100 vehicles are stranded on the A30 near Temple, also in Cornwall, because of a whiteout, Highways England said.
