A light dusting of snow is set to fall on Suffolk next week, according to forecasters, but the milder weather is not set to come to a sudden end.

Temperatures have regularly reached above 10C over recent months, much higher than the average for this time of year, which is between 5-6C.

Steve Western, a forecaster at Weatherquest, said: “About next Wednesday night and Thursday and Friday, the winds will turn more to the east and will have sleet.

“There might also be some patches of snow but I don’t think that will last for too long.”

Despite predictions of some snow, the temperature is not too drastically over the next week, with Mr Western suggesting the mercury will hit between 4-7C during the day.

He added: “At night the temperatures will be around freezing. There will be no particular sharp frosts at the moment.”

  • When weatherquest can't even get the weather right for the following 24hrs you will appreciate why i am somewhat sceptical over their accuracy of predictions for the middle of the following week.

  • Cue panic on the streets, council warning of salt shortages, trains cancelled, panic buying in shops, multiple casualties on the Electric House slippery pavement, and the skiving community claiming they can't get to work. if you don't report it , things would carry on quite merrily. People, try and keep a grip on reality this year.....

  • I remember once phoning a 5 day weather forecast to be told at the beginning about the sunny and dry day we were having whilst hearing the sound of torrential rain outside my house! And I paid for that!

More than one child is exploited in Suffolk every day, new figures have revealed, but a charity boss has warned this is “just the tip of the iceberg”.

The chief executive of national charity Mind has said leaders need to “turn rhetoric into reality” in order to truly bridge the gap between physical and mental health services.

A man collapsed after being taken ill on the outskirts of Ipswich town centre at lunchtime today.

There have been calls for common sense over a series of partial road closures around Stowmarket, which are causing congestion on several main roads.

As a search continues at a landfill site in Milton in Cambridgeshire, police are confirming that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will be working alongside officers investigating Corrie McKeague’s disappearance.

In the months since RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague went missing after a night out in Bury St Edmunds, very little information has come to light.

Music therapy sessions shelved after a funding cut have been reintroduced after a business’ donation.

What better way to illustrate the relationship between siblings than with a cub fight between young foxes.
