FREEZING temperatures recorded in Suffolk on Saturday led to it being declared the coldest day in the county for three years.

With the mercury not rising above -2C all day, January 10 became the chilliest day since December 29, 2005, according to weather experts.

Misty conditions created problems for drivers, while a host of local football fixtures had to be called off due to the weather.

Ken Blowers, an Ipswich-based weather expert, said: “Saturday saw the coldest weather in Suffolk for three years when temperatures never rose above -2C (28F).

“It was the coldest day since December 29, 2005 and the end of the 17 day cold spell - the longest in East Anglia since 1996.”

He added: “Sadly there is a chance of the cold weather returning at the end of the week as high pressure begins to develop over Scandinavia. This could mean a flow of cold air from the continent again.”
