The clocks may have gone forward for the start of British Summer Time – but the weather for much of this week is expected to remain wintry.

Overnight temperatures in parts of East Anglia are reported to have dropped below freezing and the outlook for much of the week ahead is for cold weather to continue.

While today is expected to be largely dry with plenty of warm sunshine around in Suffolk and Essex, it is expected to become wet and windy this evening.

Rain will continue moving eastwards on Tuesday, before clearing to showers on Wednesday.

Further north and on higher ground some of the showers are forecast to become wintry - though East Anglia is unlikely to see any snow,

Thursday and Friday are forecast for more sunshine and showers. And with cold air said to be “never far away”, some parts could see snow from Good Friday into the Easter weekend.
