Brighter weather expected for Easter Sunday before snow forecast for bank holiday Monday.

Today will be similar to yesterday with cloud and a north-easterly wind, but heading into tomorrow there will be sunshine and possibly highs of 14/15C.

This will all change overnight when snow showers are set to arrive in Suffolk at about 6/7am, said Dan Holley, a forecaster with Weatherquest.

He said there would be a lot of hail in the snow showers too, which would make for difficult driving conditions.

The day-time temperature on Monday will be around 6/7C in the sun, but with the wind chill it will feel closer to freezing.

The wintry showers are also set to continue into Tuesday.

Mr Holley said: "I'm actually quite optimistic Sunday afternoon will be quite nice, with quite a bit of sunshine."
