More snow could hit Sussex this week
2:20pm Wednesday 16th January 2013 in News
More snow is set to hit the county by the end of the week.
Forecasters have predicted possible snowfall on Friday, particularly on higher ground.
Temperatures will struggle to get above zero over the next few days with the mercury plummeting each night down to -7C on rural roads.
The south east is still on cold weather alert three from the Met Office, meaning there is a 90 per cent chance of ice or snow conditions.
It has warned the cold snap could affect vulnerable people and transport. Brighton and Hove City Council has advised its gritters will be out in force this week spreading salt where needed, and will continue to monitor the situation and do further road treatments when necessary.
Its rough sleepers team is providing extra help to homeless peo- ple in the city, and seafront vehi- cles are now being made available to adult social care staff if they need to get to people in hard to reach areas.
The council has again called on 4x4 drivers to help during the cold spell.
A spokesman said: “We are always looking to have a list of people we can call on if needed. “If you are able to volunteer or would like more information, please email icanhelp@brighton- hove.gov.uk.
“Volunteers will only be used when the bad weather conditions are likely to run for several days, and the demand for 4x4 vehicles exceeds the number of vehicles currently available to the council, police, fire and ambulance services.
“Residents clearing snow and checking on neighbours does make all the difference. We really appreciate the contribution of our residents and businesses in doing their bit to clear snow and ice and help neighbours.”
Drivers are again urged to be careful in the icy conditions.
