Despite mild temperatures throughout the beginning of the week, it looks like Suffolk could get another dusting of snow as cold weather from Siberia blows in.

Today through until Friday the county is predicted warm weather as rainy showers sweep the region with highs of between 8C and 11C.

However, on Saturday temperatures will drop to highs of 5C during the daytime before drastically dropping in the night.

Sunday is then set for highs of just 2C before a predicted snowfall at night. Residents could be waking up to a white landscape if flurries arrive as planned at around 5.30am.

From Monday onwards cold winds will be ripping through the region causing lows as cold as -5C next week.
