The Met Office has warned Suffolk could see heavy snowfall and travel disruption over the weekend.

Snow is forecast from Saturday afternoon across much of the UK, with parts of East Anglia expected to see up to 15cm of ground cover.

The snow will arrive from the west and become heavy and spread through the county overnight, with temperatures of -2C predicted.

A few snow flurries will remain on Sunday, the Met Office said.

Phil Garner, of Weatherquest at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, said: "Obviously it's been very cold over the last few days, and it looks as if we'll see some signifcant snow later and more tonight.

"We'll be left with a good covering tomorrow morning, and with top temperatures of just 1C tomorrow I think a lot of the snow will stick on Sunday and it may be around for a few days yet.

"It's going to be very difficult for driving, with snow falling on to frozen surfaces, so potentially very icy."
