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?



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.

‘Let’s form a coalition’ – Crawley’s Conservative leader strikes back at Labour with new proposal as political chess game heats up



If you thought the political games were going to calm down this week then think again.

After the last few weeks of turmoil within Crawley Council it is all set to keep going as new political chess moves are made.

Now a leaked email has revaled that Crawley’s Conservative Leader has stuck back after the Labour and Crawley Council Leader Peter Lamb made the first move inviting a motion of no confidence to be tabled.

In an email to the Council Leader, the Conservative leader Duncan Crow says:

“I invite you to meet with me in person to discuss options such as; forming a full coalition that we could potentially call a ‘Crawley Unity Coalition’, other power sharing arrangements, or a ‘confidence and supply agreement’ on key polices with a one-party Cabinet that has a major allocation of other influential Council positions for the other party(s).”

But this move isn’t the only political revelation of the day.

It has now been confirmed by West Sussex County Council that the recently resigned councillor Karen Sudan, who made her announcement last week to go independent, is in-fact still a Labour councillor in the County Council.
