Light snow flurries today are expected to turn persistent throughout Northamptonshire tomorrow.
A spokesman for Pitsford Hall weather station said: “Overnight into Saturday, the rain will turn to heavy snow with the potential for some travel disruption across the county. Lows will fall to around freezing.
“There is likely to be a good few centimetres of lying snow on the ground come Saturday morning and it is expected to continue snowing throughout the day, although the snow should turn lighter as the day wears on.”
The cold weather will continue into Sunday and, whilst there will still be some snow flurries around during the morning, on the whole it will be a much drier day, with much of the snow clearing by the afternoon.
On the outlook for next week, the spokesman said: “Snow showers will develop through Monday afternoon and again on Tuesday. In fact, at the moment, there is unlikely to be any improvement for the remainder of the week.”
Today is not expected to bring any further snow this afternoon. The weather station reports that snow has already fallen widely across the county, but this should clear northwards over the morning, turning to light rain or drizzle. In the afternoon and evening this will become heavy at times.
