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

Some icy patches are likely to develop on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

The Met Office Chief Forecaster’s assessment advises “A band of sleet and snow will turn more showery overnight but with some heavier bursts possible, especially over Norfolk and Suffolk.

“1-4 cm of snow is possible in places there, though rain and sleet may occur along coasts. Elsewhere some places seeing a cm or so of snow but ice may be the more widespread hazard.”
