Shivering Suffolk could yet face another dusting of snow, forecasters warned today.

Experts gloomily predicted wintry showers were on the way to the east coast, bringing with them strengthening winds and overnight frosts.

Suffolk had been enjoying a refreshingly bright spell of weather without the threat of the heavy snowfall we were becoming accustomed to in recent weeks.

The general sentiment from forecasters for the upcoming few days is to wrap up against below average temperatures and prepare for the possibility of more dull and drizzly weather.

Cloud is expected to swamp the county today, bringing with it light rain or drizzle during the afternoon.
