The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice across East Anglia.

The warning is in force until Monday at 9am.

Parts of the region could see up to 3cm of snow with the Met Office predicting that wintry showers may start falling from 7pm Sunday evening.

The weather warning reads: “Wintry showers during Sunday evening and night will allow ice to form readily on untreated surfaces and where showers wash off earlier road treatment. Where showers are most frequent, localised accumulations of between 1 and 3 cm could occur.

“Please be aware of the potential for difficult driving conditions and slippery surfaces.”

The warning is in place from 7pm on Sunday to 9am Monday morning.

Temperatures are expected to drop below freezing across Norfolk with it feeling as cold as -4C in some places.
