There is an "increasing risk" of snowfall in Suffolk next week according to the Met Office. 

Arctic air is expected to sweep across the county bringing cold weather and potential snowfall. 

And there is an "increasing risk" that snow and sleet will move further south across the UK as temperatures fall below the average for this time of year. 

Mark Sideway, deputy chief meteorologist at the Met Office, said: "The extended outlook shows the possibility for a series of areas of low pressure to come across the Atlantic, and these bring the potential for some more widespread snowfall as they encounter the cold air."

Beyond the first week of March, the outlook suggests further potential for colder conditions although at this time it is unclear.

A spokesman for the Met Office added: "Temperatures are most likely to be below average overall during at least the first half of March.

"There is a chance that some areas could see snow. Some wintry episodes could be disruptive with a combination of snow and strong winds."
