Met Office issues update to Sussex weather alert for snow

The Met Office issued an update on a weather warning for snow across Sussex tomorrow.

A county-wide amber weather warning for snow and ice is in effect tomorrow evening and the BBC is forecasting wintry showers in parts of Sussex.

Prolonged snowfall is expected in Eastbourne in particular from around 7pm to around 3am.

However, the national weather agency has pushed back the start of its warning, which also covers most of south-east England and London, to 6pm tomorrow.

The Met Office is warning that snow and ice could disrupt travel, particularly for Monday morning commuters, with up to four inches of snow possible in some spots.

“The areas most likely to be affected are in Kent and Sussex, with the higher areas here being the most exposed,” a weather service spokesman said.

The cold snap that has gripped the country in recent days is expected to continue well into the coming week.

Steve Willington, chief meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “It will remain cold as daytime temperatures remain just a few degrees above freezing in many locations over the coming days and overnight temperatures drop to -10C or below in isolated locations.

“While these temperatures are below average, they are not unusual for this time of year.

“There is still a risk that we could see freezing fog in some places, particularly in southern England, particularly on Sunday and Monday mornings. There is also a small risk of a band of sleet or snow moving into the far southeast on Sunday.

“If that happens, it could potentially cause disruption, especially around Monday rush hour.”
