Snow showers are likely throughout Sunday across the region and a yellow weather warning has been issued by the Met Office.

Some snow may accumulate and prove disruptive, with a small chance of travel delays on the roads and cancelled rail and air travel in East Anglia.

The yellow weather warning for snow is in place between 12.05am and 11.55pm on Sunday.

A yellow weather warning for snow and ice is also in place between 5pm on Friday until 9am on Saturday for the east of England.

For conditions on Friday, the Met Office said: “A band of rain and hill snow will increasingly turn to snow to lower levels through Friday evening and overnight into Saturday.

“This band will gradually ease during Saturday morning as it moves south-westwards, allowing ice to form as it clears.

“Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services. Icy patches are likely on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.”
