THE next couple of days sees the chance of snow for rush hour tomorrow and a sting in the tail tomorrow night, according to Netweather.

“From mid evening onwards today the much talked about ‘winter Storm’ starts to make its presence felt in the Horsham area as the first rains arrive, and strangely the winds subside a little,” said Ian Michaelwaite.

“Overnight the stronger blustery wind starts to build pushing more rain into the district and as we reach the morning rush hour a chance of snow, especially for higher ground.

“The colder air being pulled in from the north west by the storm will have a biting wind chill making the already low temperatures feel well below zero for a time.

“The afternoon will bring a little relief as the remaining rain and sleet clear with the potential for another short lived band of showers around the evening rush hour.

“Friday night and the clearing skies will produce a widespread frost, which combined with wet roads and pavements will lead to a risk of ice well into Saturday morning, with hazardous conditions on untreated surfaces.

“It’s worth mentioning that we currently don’t expect the widely reported weather chaos with 70mph winds to hit overnight tonight, but should the storm track shift north by a few miles this will change and stronger winds will arrive from midnight, with a reduced risk for snow for the district tomorrow.”
