It’s time to wrap up warm and grab the anti-freeze as the country faces the first cold snap of the winter.
On Tuesday night temperatures plummeted to -5C (23F) in Cavendish and -4C (25F) in Wattisham making it the coldest night of the year so far.
James Wilby, forecaster at Weatherquest, says in other parts of the county the temperatures may have been even lower.
“It was a pretty chilly night to say the least,” he said.
“Certainly the coldest night of the season.
“We saw Suffolk at -5C at the weather station but it’s quite possible more rural areas would have seen colder.”
The temperature is expected to pick up towards the end of the week, with temperatures set to reach 2 to 3C (37F), but there will be potential for frost.
