Hadleigh and Raydon woke to a light flurry of snow this morning but temperatures have now risen above freezing.

This morning Suffolk woke up to temperatures between -4C and -5C.

Weatherquest predicted that the region would experience outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow between 7am-8am.

However many were left disappointed as it was only seen in Hadleigh and Raydon.

Adam Dury, a weather forecaster at Weatherquest, said: “There will be falling snow mixed with sleet and rain. People will see snow flakes falling from the sky today even if it is brief.”

However the freezing temperatures are not forecast to stick around with a dry afternoon predicted.

Adam added: “Temperatures will slowly go above freezing and by the afternoon it should be around 2C-3C with intervals of sun but overall it will be a cloudy day.”

The mix of sleet and rain will create icy conditions on the roads and paths.

Tomorrow isn’t forecast to have any snow but we will wake up to temperatures below freezing with mist, fog, and rain. Spots of rain are then predicted throughout the day.
