Is snow coming again? Truth is we don’t know yet!

Do we need to pull out those wooly hats again or is this just more exagerated nonsense?

Published

Mention the word snow and the chances are most people look up with one of two reactions.

Concern or Excitement.

That is except for most people in Crawley.

With the country having just experienced on of the coldest February’s ever and with the MET office now saying another cold belt is headed towards us suddenly talk of snow is back on the cards.

So why are Crawley people not as concerned?  Could it be that only a couple of weeks ago as most of the country struggled under the grip of artic conditions and snow piling up meant travel was almost impossible that we here basked (well anything above -3 IS basking in this country) and went about our day just like any other.

Yes a few schools closed but not because of the terrible conditions here, more over because staff lived in areas ‘actually’ affected.

So what is the prediction for this cold snap?

There is a large pool of cold air from northern Europe that is slowly making its way towards the UK.  Experts are not yet sure if this will actually even reach the UK yet, but if it continues its progress in the same direction then come Saturday we are in for a very cold couple of days.

This is where the snow warnings come in.  Whilst the temperature is not expected to be as cold as it was a few weeks ago, there is a very high chance of frost at night and a possibility of snow, particularly over the SE of the country.

So before you start to panic buy more thermals and knuckle down for that artic storm, heed the advice of the experts and in-fact just keep an eye on the weather reports as we get closer to the weekend.

For the truth is no-one yet knows if snow is on its way.
