Snow fall in Suffolk was unlikely according to forecasters, but some parts of county have woken up to light coverings of the white stuff.

With temperatures dropping down to below freezing across the county, the gritters have been out in force today.

On Twitter, dustings of snow were reported in Saxmundham and other parts of east Suffolk as well, but most seems to have fallen north of the border in Norfolk, with the showers turning to sleet and rain as it reached Suffolk.

Chris Bell, meteorologist at Weatherquest, said more snow in Suffolk is becoming less and less likely as we go into the afternoon today (November 22).
