SEVERE weather warnings have been issued for parts of Suffolk and Norfolk by the Met Office.
Up to five cm of snow is expected to fall overnight in some parts of the east.
Motorists are being advised to allow extra time for their journeys and to slow down, as black ice is expected and roads look set to be treacherous in places.
There is currently heavy traffic queuing on the A12 at Lowestoft, with the roads around Hopton and Corton described as being 'very busy' at the height of the evening rush hour.
