BRIGHTON and Hove could see "light snow showers" in the aftermath of Storm Christoph, the BBC has reported.

Temperatures are set to plummet over the weekend after the storm battered the Sussex coast with wind and rain.

And, with this, the BBC has reported there could be "light snow showers" in Brighton and Hove between 7am and 9am on Sunday.

It has also predicted "sleet showers" between 9am and 10am tomorrow, and between 9am and 11am on Sunday.

Heavier snowfall has been forecast further north.

Met Office chief meteorologist Paul Gundersen said: "Colder air is now established across the UK as Storm Christoph moves away into the North Sea, and gale force winds will impact the northeast of the country.

“There are three National Severe weather warnings in place, two in north and east Scotland, one for rain and one for snow valid until noon on Friday, and an ice warning cover western Scotland, north west England, Northern Ireland and much of Wales, valid until 10 am Friday."

This cold weather is set to stay throughout the weekend and into next week.

"The southern half of the UK is likely to be more unsettled with some spells of rain, and perhaps also some snow," a Met Office spokesman said.
