Forecasters have said there is a chance of snow in parts of Suffolk on Wednesday after an ice warning was issued by the Met Office.

Weatherquest, based in East Anglia, has said wintry showers are possible in the afternoon and evening as the recent cold snap continues.

The evening could see some snow in the Lowestoft area in the north-east of Suffolk – though the chances are slim.

Temperatures are expected to hit highs of 4C before another subzero night, with lows of -5C possible further inland.

Santon Downham in north Suffolk recorded lows of -7.6C over Monday night.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice for the majority of east and mid Suffolk, which will be in place until 10am on Wednesday.

James Lester, meteorologist at Weatherquest, said: "Wednesday will be a largely dry and sunny day. Later in the afternoon we will see some thick clouds that could bring some wintry showers.

"It will then be another cold night with some hard frost. We could see temperatures of -3C all across Suffolk.

"The greatest chance of snow will be on Wednesday evening in the far north-east of Suffolk, such as in Lowestoft. That's the only real place that will have a chance."
