Snow is forecast across Sussex for this weekend.

We are set to see snow from Friday evening through to Saturday, as well as very icy roads.

Yesterday, the Met Office issued a yellow warning for snow and ice across Sussex, which could disrupt travel.

The Met Office said: “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.

“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.”

The warning comes at a time when heavy winds, hail, icy rain and black clouds are coming and going over Sussex campus. Campus has not seen snow in around two months, and has not received any heavy snowfall this academic year.
