Showers of sleet and snow will continue across coastal parts of eastern England, especially this evening (Wednesday, December 14) and the early part of the night.

These showers will fall onto surfaces that are below freezing, leading to some slippery conditions where surfaces remain untreated, due to either ice or a slight dusting of snowfall. Regions and local authorities affected include Norfolk and Suffolk.

The conditions may lead to injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces, and there may be icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths. When snow or icy roads are forecast, you should adjust your driving to suit the conditions and take extra care. Try to wait until the roads have been gritted before travelling.

If you go outside wear several layers of clothing and be careful when walking or driving on compacted snow as it may have turned to ice. For more information, visit metoffice.gov.uk.
