Snow is falling in King’s Lynn this morning.

As the country is warned to be prepared for what is being called, ‘The Beast From The East’, here is when the worst of the cold weather will hit West Norfolk.

A yellow weather warning is in place today (Monday).

The Met Office says we should be prepared for the worst conditions between 2pm and midnight.

The Met Office said: “Snow is expected to become more persistent and more widespread through Monday afternoon and evening.

“There is the potential for travel delays on roads, stranding of some vehicles and passengers, as well as delays or cancellations to rail and air travel. Some rural communities could become cut off.

“Power cuts may also occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected.”

An amber weather warning is in place from 4am until 11am.

The Met Office aid: “Snow showers or longer periods of snow are expected on Tuesday, accompanied by very low temperatures.

“The heaviest, most persistent snow looks likely to cross the area during the morning. There is the likelihood of travel delays on roads, with some stranded vehicles and passengers, as well as delays or cancellations to rail and air travel.”
