Weather forecast

A Met Office warning has been issued for sleet and snow for Friday afternoon and Saturday morning across Sussex.

The Met Office says that “a mix of rain, sleet and snow associated with a frontal band is expected to push south across southern parts of England and Wales through Friday afternoon and evening, before clearing by the early hours of Saturday.

“Snow will be predominantly confined to the higher ground above 200-400m with perhaps 1-2cm accumulating here. At lower levels this will be mainly rain and sleet but may turn briefly to snow in heavier outbreaks of precipitation.

“As this front clears south through the evening there is potential for widespread black ice to form quickly on road surfaces and pavements.”

As part of its yellow ‘be prepared’ warning the Met office adds: “Please be aware of the potential for difficult driving conditions and for some travel disruption during the Friday evening rush hour and overnight into Saturday morning.”
