Snow fell across Suffolk and north Essex this morning – take a look at our gallery of pictures from both counties.
Many places in Suffolk and north Essex, including Braintree, Colchester, Halstead, Bury St Edmunds, Long Melford, Sudbury and Ipswich, experienced snow this morning, and a Met Office yellow weather warning for rain and snow was in place until 10am.
The warning was in place for the west of Suffolk, and parts of north Essex.
Speaking this morning, Dan Holley, Weatherquest forecaster, tweeted: “Rain has turned to wet snow in parts of Essex, Hertfordshire and south Cambridgeshire so far, and this risk will extend northwards into west Suffolk, west Norfolk and north/north east Cambridgeshire through this morning. Some slushy accumulations of 1-5cm will be possible in this zone.”

But the rain, sleet and snow cleared through the morning, paving the way for some brighter but breezier conditions in the afternoon with some isolated showers.
Suffolk Highways also sent its teams out to treat the roads following the change in forecast.
The authority said: “Due to a change in forecast this morning, our teams are now getting ready to treat priority one routes across the county. Snow is forecast in parts, please drive safe and to the conditions.”
