Snow turns to sunshine

PUBLISHED: 10:16 09 November 2001 | UPDATED: 10:49 03 March 2010

SNOW turned to sunshine today after Suffolk awoke to be greeted by wintry conditions which left many cars and roads coated by a sprinking of snow.

However despite the brutal conditions in other parts of the country the county escaped the worst of the weather.

SNOW turned to sunshine today after Suffolk awoke to be greeted by wintry conditions which left many cars and roads coated by a sprinking of snow.

However despite the brutal conditions in other parts of the country the county escaped the worst of the weather.

The good news is that according to the weather forecasters the milder weather is set to return for the weekend with temperatures expected to reach 12C.

It's not only the cold which has enveloped Suffolk. Some areas of the county have been put on flood alert.

The River Waveney is on flood alert due to the rain over yesterday and early today.

Elsewhere in the world Kiev, was basking in temperatures of 10C while England shivered. It was even warmer in Rome where people awoke to 15C and sunshine.

It was a distant cry from last week when Ipswich was awash with short sleeves and optimism.

Ken Blowers, Evening Star weather man, said the temperature today was well below the average we should expect.

"The average temperature this time of year is 10C, today we struggled to a pathetic 7C. In comparison last week at this time it was 14C, this is a big difference. The good news is the cold spell will only last another day and then we will return to wet and cloudy weather," he said.

This extreme cold spell is apparently caused when weather forms are formed over the North Sea, to the north of the Wash and then make their way over to us.

Whatever the reasons it has certainly left us wondering just what she has in store for us next.
