Weather forecasters are predicting late winter sun in Suffolk and north Essex after a week in which temperatures barely raised above freezing.

The mercury could even reach as high as 14C this coming weekend, with Saturday and Sunday expected to be mostly bright and dry.

However, Wednesday and Thursday are set to be wet and cloudy - with rain forecast both days.

The forecast follows a week of freezing temperatures as snow from Storm Darcy fell throughout the region, causing travel chaos and full school closures.

Temperatures only began to rise on Sunday as the last of the snow melted.
