Drivers in East Anglia are being warned that they will wake to more snow tomorrow as a fresh band of wintry weather moves across the country.

The Highways Agency has called on motorists to take extra care as forecasters predict a band of heavy snow, accompanied by fairly strong winds, will move across England from the west during Thursday afternoon and Friday.

Most areas will see between two and five centimetres of snow, but the accompanying winds mean drifts as high as 10cm are possible.

The clouds are likely to hit Suffolk and Essex overnight, with the Highways Agency predicting particularly difficult conditions during Friday morning's rush hour.

It has issued advice to drivers to travel with warm clothes, food and water, boots, de-icer, a torch and a spade in case they become stranded.

But the snow is likely to turn to rain during Friday, with milder weather and a widespread thaw setting in over the weekend.
