A white Christmas has been ruled out for Suffolk and Essex – but snow may be on its way before the new year.
Forecasters at Weatherquest in Norwich say a frosty start to Christmas Day is the closest the region will get to a festive white coating.
“Otherwise it’s going to be a pleasant winter’s day,” said Weatherquest’s Chris Bell.
“It will be cold but clear and dry,”
High temperatures are expected to be around 5c of 6c – cooler than the mild weather of recent days but remaining above freezing. On Boxing Day, Mr Bell said the weather was expected to “become a little more interesting”.

Mr Bell said the temperatures were likely to remain low with wintery showers possible, particularly on Sunday.
