A wintry blast of snow could sweep across Suffolk this weekend.
Isolated sleet showers could hit the county between Wednesday and Friday, with a smaller chance on Saturday, as temperatures fall to as low as 3C (37F) during the day and -2C (28F) at night.
And there is a stronger chance of snow showers on Sunday and Monday, according to Phil Garner, forecaster at Weatherquest, as temperatures plummet to as low as -4C (25F).
He said: “It is turning chilly. There is nothing too extreme really in terms of wintry weather – there is rain coming on Wednesday and in the middle part of the day there could be sleety showers which could clear away in the afternoon.
“But it is certainly cooler on Thursday and Friday with temperatures of 3C (37f) or 4C (39F) and an overnight frost with temperatures as low as -2C (28f). One or two showers from the west may be more wintry on Thursday and Friday, and more isolated on Saturday.
“On Sunday and Monday, the winds turn round to the north and we may see a few snow showers. On Thursday and Friday it is more likely it will be sleet than snow (but) there is a fairly good signal for (snow showers on Sunday and Monday) at the moment.
“Any (snow) showers we do get will be brief and light dustings. But there will be colder nights of -3C (27F) or -4C (25F) and sharper frosts developing.”
