Residents across Sussex woke up to freezing temperatures this morning, with warnings that the cold snap will cause further disruption this weekend.

Temperatures dropped to -6C in parts of the county as the cold snap continues across the UK.

It comes as most of Sussex will see more ice and possibly even snow on Sunday, with the Met Office issuing a yellow weather warning for northern parts of the county, including Haywards Heath, Crawley and Uckfield.

The weather agency warned that a period of rain and snow falling on frozen surfaces will lead to icy conditions, with a chance of disruption on roads and delays to air and rail services.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “Widespread frozen surfaces ahead of a band of rain, sleet and snow, pushing northeast across the UK through Sunday, will lead to a risk of icy conditions through the morning.

“Any sleet or snow in the south or southeast will likely only last an hour or two, before turning readily to rain.

“Any slight accumulations, likely no more than two centimetres and mostly over higher ground, will melt rapidly which may briefly add to the ice risk.

Sunday will also see the start of a change in weather, with more unsettled conditions into next week along with slightly warmer temperatures.
