FORECASTERS have predicted that Suffolk is in for the coldest night of winter so far this evening.

Chris Bell, a forecaster with Weatherquest, said temperatures could plummet to -3C.

It follows freezing temperatures of -1C last night and in the early hours of this morning.

Mr Bell said: “It will be the coldest night of the season so far. You are looking at it being about -1C last night so it will be a couple of degrees colder tonight.”

The freezing conditions resulted in Suffolk County Council gritters being sent out across the county last night and also this morning.
