Photographs submitted by our readers capture the coldest weather of the season.

Frosty scenes of fields and foliage reveal how temperatures have dropped over the past few days – and more cold weather is predicted to come.

Dan Holley, a forecaster with Norwich-based Weatherquest, said over the next few days temperatures would be similar to what we have seen – about 8-9C (46-48F) – but there would be a chill factor with the wind.

He said most nights would feel fairly chilly, with temperatures around 2-3C (36-37F).

He said Friday night would probably be colder still, with probably another widespread frost, and Saturday night would also feel very chilly.

“Some places in the county could get close to freezing. I think we are widely looking at 1-3C (34-37F), but with some places getting down to 0C (32F),” he added.

Looking forward to next week, he said from Tuesday onwards it looked like it would become much colder.

“The first proper cold spell of this season. I think day-time temperatures will be down to 4-5C (39-41F) or so and with a wind chill on top of that.”

Mr Holley added: “There could be a few showers around with some hail mixed in. And with a heavy shower you might get some sleet mixed in.”

But he doubted the south would see snow just yet.

Night-time temperatures next week are predicted to be close to, if not below freezing.
