SUFFOLK may still be shivering as the cold snap grips the county but weather experts today promised milder conditions were on their way.

Today is the 17th day of the icy spell - the longest wintry blast for more than 12 years, with temperatures regularly plunging well below freezing.

However, warmer south-westerly winds were expected to blow over Suffolk today and tomorrow, bringing with them more comfortable temperatures.

Yesterday morning, temperatures hovered at 23F/-5C but the mercury should rise to something approaching the January average of 44F/7C this weekend.

Evening Star weatherman Ken Blowers said: “This is the longest cold spell since 1996.

“Yesterday, there was so much frost it looked like we had seen another fall of snow.”
