SPRING is on hold as forecasters warn snow and sub-zero temperatures are set to return to Suffolk.

A band of rain, sleet and snow is sweeping across the country with strong, freezing winds making the temperatures feel even colder than they are.

Tony Conlan, of MeteoGroup, said today would consist of rain and sleet showers with top temperatures of 5C.

“There will be snow showers on Saturday night and what people will notice then is the strength of the cold, north-easterly wind, which is really going to pick up,” he added.

“It will be bitterly cold in the wind and temperatures will mostly stay below zero as we head into Sunday.

“Sunday will be a day of sunshine and a scattering of snow showers.”

He also said the coldest weather will arrive early next week with temperatures remaining below zero.
