Suffolk and Essex are set for a cold and cloudy day today – with maximum temperatures of around 5C (41F).

Adam Dury, forecaster at Weatherquest, said we should expect a few showers through the day as clouds gradually sweep across the region from the north.

“It is a cold start to the morning,” he said. “We will gradually see the temperature rise through the morning but it will be slow progress,

“We will have cloud coming over from the north with warm air from the north west.

“It will be a cloudy day with maybe a few spots of rain and drizzle.

“It will get warmer over night, warmer than it was during the day.

“Maximum temperatures during the day will be around 4-5C (39-41F).
