Wintry showers are set to arrive in East Anglia over the next few days as a yellow weather warning has been put in place from this evening.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for snow and ice from 6pm tonight until 11am tomorrow.

The warning said: “Icy patches are likely to develop on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths or where showers cause wash off on treated roads.

“Wintry showers will bring an additional hazard and may lead to two to five centimetres of snow accumulating on ground above 100m, primarily over northern Scotland and northeast England.”

But while the yellow warning is in place from tonight, forecasters have warned that wintry showers are more likely from Thursday into Friday.

Phil Garner, Weatherquest forecaster, said: “There’s not a great deal of change for the next 48 hours.

“We are continuing to see showers feeding in from the north, and some will be wintry.

“We will get some fairly cold air from the northerly wind.

“It’s fairly widespread for tonight and still showers in the morning – some could be particularly wintry and I suspect for tomorrow it’s more ice than snow hazard.

“[Thursday] we have got further showers and some could be falling sleet or snow tomorrow evening into Friday morning.”

Mum fell over, breaking her shoulder, on October 3, 2013. I remember the date because that day’s newspaper remained by the phone for almost six months, until she moved back into the house.

World-leading social science research at the University of Essex has been recognised with the presentation of a prestigious award at Buckingham Palace.

East Anglia’s rail services are facing serious disruption this week because of the heavy snowfall predicted over the next few days.

Emergency services were called to the Orwell Bridge area on Sunday afternoon after two motorists reported seeing a man leaning over the bridge parapet.

Bitterly cold weather and plunging temperatures are set to hit Suffolk and Essex overnight – and people living on the eastern side of the region could wake up to a covering of snow this morning.

Major roadworks in Suffolk and Essex this week will bring partial and full closures to busy routes including the A14, A12, A120 and A47.

The body of Bradley Lewis, 25, from Witham was found in a river on Friday morning.
