THE unusual weather it set to continue after some near-recording breaking March temperatures.

Britain saw the warmest March day in 53 years with temperatures reaching 24.5c last week.

Sun-soakers on the coast relished in similar hot weather, with the mercury reaching the low 20s in Sussex.

But this week, according to the BBC, parts of the county are now set to see snow as temperatures plummet following a relatively toasty Bank Holiday weekend.

BBC weather is predicting snow will fall across East Sussex from 10pm this evening.

According to the prediction, residents in or around East Grinstead, Horsham and Haywards Heath should prepare themselves for an icy dusting.

However, if the reports are accurate, Brighton and Hove will miss out on the snow showers.

A Met Office spokesman giving the UK-wide forecast said: “A dry and largely sunny morning, though cold.

“Some scattered snow showers will develop during the latter part of the afternoon.

“These will move quickly in the strong northerly wind, giving a significant wind chill. Maximum temperature 7 °C.

“Any showers will die away during the evening, with lighter winds and clearer skies leading to a cold night with a widespread frost, generally more severe in western parts.

"Minimum temperature -4 °C.”
