SUFFOLK had its first snowflakes today - but those who wanted to put their mittens on and build a snowman were out of luck.

Less than a millimetre of snow fell over Bury St Edmunds this morning and The Evening Star weatherman, Ken Blowers, warned the ground is too warm for any that falls to stay.

However Mr Blowers said that snow showers were due to fall in the region throughout the day and the best chance of being able to have a snowball fight would be late tonight or early tomorrow.

He said: “There have been snow showers across the county today but they have been separated by glorious blue sky.

“The greatest threat of a downfall is tonight and tomorrow morning as there is a patch coming in this direction over the north sea.

“Today Bury got a snippet of the favourite wintry weather but because the ground is too warm it didn't lay and there was only a millimetre at most that fell.”
