Threat of more snow - but end in sight

More snow was expected to hit the region today - but that could be the last of the recent spate.

SUFFOLK: More snow was expected to hit the region today - but that could be the last of the recent spate.

Flurries of snow and sleet were forecast to fall across Suffolk with the possibility of up to 2cm settling.

But although temperatures are set to stay low throughout the week, it looks like the recent spell of heavy has ended.

However, conditions will remain icy as last week's snow continues to melt.

John Law, a forecaster for Weatherquest, said: “There will be some snow and sleet today, which could be the end of it.

“However, more snow isn't completely out of the question. We're still in winter and it's still going to be very cold.

“It will also be very icy as last week's snow continues to thaw so again we would urge drivers and pedestrians to wrap up warm and take care.”

The week ahead will be another cold one but there could be earlier signs of spring come the weekend.

Mr Law added: “It's going to be very cold for parts of Suffolk and Essex for the rest of the week.

“Temperatures are going to be around freezing point inland and 2C on the coast so it will be a cold and frosty week.

“On Thursday there will be fog and mist lingering throughout the day but it will be mainly dry.

“The dry weather will continue into Friday where we may even see brief spells of sunshine.

“Come the weekend we should see temperatures becoming more mild and much more like what we're used to for this time of year.”
