A weather warning has been issued for ice across Norfolk and Waveney.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for ice for large parts of the country, including Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

It is in place from 6pm on Wednesday until 10am on Thursday. The warning states: “Following a spell of rain, sleet and snow, temperatures will fall quickly allowing ice to form on untreated surfaces.

“Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services. Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces are possible.”

Cold temperatures are expected to continue over the next few days, when they will widely drop below freezing overnight

On Friday night the mercury could fall as low as minus 8C (17.6F) over parts of Scotland and could plunge to minus 10C on Sunday night.

Alex Burkill, a Met Office meteorologist, said: “On Sunday night into Monday temperatures could get as low as minus 10C or a little bit below in parts of Scotland, with lying snow and to minus 3C (26.6F) or minus 4C (24.8F) across many parts of the UK.

“It will be a cold frosty start on Monday with a harsh frost.”
