Weather: Snow eases but temperatures to stay subzero

WEATHER: Freezing overnight fog is expected to keep temperatures below zero over the next 24 hours.

Fewer scattered snow showers are predicted and the county will remain mostly dry throughout the afternoon tomorrow.

Today’s widespread snowfall left a hard frost on the ground which could still prove tricky for drivers to negotiate.

The north of the county is most likely to see snow but Suffolk will generally stay free from further showers.

Tomorrow is expected to be cloudy with some bright spells and it will remain very cold all weekend.

Wintry rain, sleet or snow showers may fall as icy conditions persist but the more extreme weather should by then have passed.

The county has generally escaped much of the chaos seen across other parts of the UK.

Most Read

Yesterday there was some minor chaos in Suffolk caused by the extreme conditions, with gridlock on the road for motorists heading home, a few schools forced to shut and panic buying of petrol.

Overall there were no major incidents and most people struggled in to work. Police also reported few crashes as it would seem most people heeded their advice and stayed indoors. The crash on a section of A140 at Mendlesham partially closed the road until 8.45pm last night.
