Christmas day will be warm, wet and windy across Suffolk this year - but it certainly will not be white.
Christmas eve will begin the string of a wet few days, with, after a bright start, rain and strong winds expected to remain throughout the afternoon.
Weatherquest forecaster Adam Dury said that the forecast was not set to improve over the festive holiday.
“It’s not looking like the best few days over Christmas,” he said. “It’s not looking very good for Christmas Day.
“After a bright start, it’s not looking the best.”

Suffolk has experienced unseasonably warm weather over the past few weeks, and forecasters say the balmy weather could continue until into the New Year.
