Parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland have been given a snow and ice warning - find out if the snow will be travelling to Suffolk.

Adam Dury, a weather forecaster for Weatherquest, has said there is a very low chance of snow in Suffolk.

He said: “If anything there will be rainy sleet over night but no proper snow. The sleet falling from the sky won’t lay as the floor temperature will be too warm.”

At midnight the temperature will be 3C (37.4F) but then it will drop to 1-2C (33.8-35.6F).

Mr Dury added: “Tomorrow will be dry first thing but cloudy in the afternoon, there could also be a shower in the early part of the afternoon. However, it should then be dry for the rest of the day.”

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for ice for large parts of the country, including Suffolk and Essex.

It is in place from 6pm on Wednesday until 10am on Thursday. The warning states: “Following a spell of rain, sleet and snow, temperatures will fall quickly allowing ice to form on untreated surfaces.

“Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services. Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces are possible.”

Cold temperatures are expected to continue over the next few days, when they will widely drop below freezing overnight.
