Heavy snow set to return in Suffolk

THE heavy snow which blighted the region two weeks ago is poised to return this week as conditions start to deteriorate over the next few days.

Although conditions have improved over the last few days it is widely predicted that snow could begin falling again later this week.

Steve Western, a forecaster at Weatherquest, said: 'There is a chance that we could see some snowfall this week and in the days leading up until Christmas.

'However, the weather reports we have received so far have been conflicting so I would urge people not to panic just yet.'

Last week forecasters at British Weather Services (BWS) predicted that heavy snowfall would make the Christmas period a 'living nightmare' for people across the UK.

Bosses at Suffolk County Council said that grit supplies were 'adequate at present' and more deliveries were expected before Christmas Day.
