After months of being battered by storms, the Met Office has forecast that there is a "good chance" of freezing temperatures returning this winter.

Since November, seven named storms have hit Suffolk – with the county experiencing strong winds and flooding. 

As well as this, a number of cold weather alerts have been issued by the Met Office for the region over the winter months as temperatures dropped well below freezing.

The Met Office has said that although we are now seeing a milder period of weather, the long-range outlook still indicates a "good chance of a return to colder conditions".

It said: "Our long-range forecast systems suggest February will start off mild, with the chance of cold weather increasing as we go through the month and into March.

"This means we could yet see some cold weather-related impacts such as snow and ice."

The Met Office has also warned of "impactful weather" throughout February which is bringing a chance of snow to the county
