It’s snowing in Southwold – and excited residents have snapped photographs showing a light dusting of the white stuff.

Saint Felix School tweeted an image showing a blanket of snow covering their grounds in Halesworth Road, Reydon.

Jeremy Reeve also shared a snap of St Edmunds Church in the town.

Weather experts believe there is a chance snow will fall in other parts of East Anglia today as the region is gripped by a cold snap.

Coastal communities are most likely to see snowfall, with north-westerly Arctic winds and wintry showers expected.

Temperatures are currently 0C in most parts of the region, while Southwold and Felixstowe are seeing the mercury drop to -1C and -2C.

Weatherquest forecaster Phil Garner has warned wintry showers are more likely from Thursday into Friday.

He added: “We are continuing to see showers feeding in from the north, and some will be wintry.

“We will get some fairly cold air from the northerly wind today.

“Some showers could be particularly wintry and I suspect for today it’s more ice than snow hazard.

“Today we have got further showers and some could be falling sleet or snow this evening into Friday morning.”

Snow-lovers in Suffolk and Essex took full advantage of today’s weather by getting outside to enjoy the white stuff despite plummeting temperatures.

A woman arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving when under the influence of drink or drugs has been released under investigation.

The Harvest Centre, home of Brandon Full Gospel Church, held its Christmas meal on Saturday evening and this year invited people who had made a difference in the community.

A woman was raped in a car in Lowestoft yesterday in what police have described as a “despicable attack”.

Kesgrave High School will be closed tomorrow after a major power failure.

Ipswich Town Hall will be 150 years old in January. John Norman looks at its story – one rarely dull.

Headteachers face an “impossible” task of deciding whether to close their school due to snow and fear looking “foolish” later in the day if forecasts prove to be inaccurate, education leaders say.
