A yellow weather warning has been issued as cold temperatures continue and forecasters say there is a chance of snow in Suffolk tomorrow. 

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for ice in north Suffolk on Wednesday night and Thursday morning. The warning, which covers the north of the county and extends as far south as Aldeburgh, says that injuries from slips and falls on ice patches are possible.

It comes after parts of the region saw snowfall at the weekend and forecasters say there could be more snowfall to come.

Zoe Johnson, meteorologist at East Anglian forecasters Weatherquest, said: "As low pressure clears we get more northerly wind developing, which makes it feel cooler once again. Overnight and into tomorrow we will see showers coming down from the North Sea and some of those could turn wintery at times. 

"There is the possibility of some wintery showers overnight and will be more isolated as the night progresses. 

"It could be a cold and frosty start to the morning tomorrow and the pattern for tomorrow does not really change that much.

"We will still be seeing the northerly winds and that feed of showers coming from the north that could turn wintery in places, particularly inland.

"You could see a brief flurry of snow mixed with sleet and rain and we cannot rule out a centimetre of snow accumulating briefly in odd isolated areas but we are not expected a huge amount."
