PEOPLE in the county could wake up to a light dusting of snow next week, weather forecasters are predicting.
The forecast has come as temperatures begin to fall slightly below average for this time of year.
Daytime temperatures of about 3-4C and night temperatures of between -1C and -2C expected for the rest of the month.
The colder weather follows a relatively mild start to the new year.
Steve Western, a forecaster at Weatherquest, said: “I strongly suspect we will see some snow next week.
“Whether it settles or not is another question, but there should not be enough to cause problems.”
Mr Western added that some sleet could also hit Suffolk next week.
Temperatures are expected to reach highs of 8C today with some sunshine, but they will fall during the rest of the week, with highs of 4C on Saturday.
The average temperature for this time of year is about 6C.
Mr Western added: “January and February is our coldest time of year so the temperatures do tend to fall.
“Temperatures are going to drop down, but we are above average at the moment.”
