'Cold air is moving in from the north east and east and as a result there is still a chance of more wintry showers. However I don't think they will cause too many problems.

He said that today's snow should start to clear this afternoon but warned that temperatures will drop away to -2C in western parts of Suffolk.
'It could be a case of icy roads to watch out for,' he said.
