The Met Office’s forecast for the week ahead suggests more wintry showers could affect the UK tomorrow and again towards the week ahead, possibly including Suffolk and Essex.

Weatherquest which is based in Norwich, also said snow could return to Suffolk and Essex.

Forecaster Richard Jones said most of the snow overnight had fallen in a band in the east of the region, extending southwards as far as Kent.

“The wintry showers are now starting to become lighter and more isolated and that’s the trend for the rest of the day,” he added.

“We’ve got a frosty start tomorrow, with minimum overnight temperatures down to -2C.”

Mr Jones said there could also be another light dusting of snow, similar to this morning’s conditions.

Wednesday is also forecast to be a cold day, though drier and brighter than the start of the week.

Milder air is expected to come on Thursday before northerly winds return on Friday bring the possibility of more wintry showers.
