“As we go into the early hours of Sunday there will be a frost in the first part of the night.

“Then a weather front of sleet and snow will come in.

“Even in Suffolk we may see some accumulation of snow on Sunday.

“But this will turn to rain as the weather front pushes northwards.

“It will be a wetter day after the early sleet and snow.”
