The large flurry is set to hit the city at around midnight and linger over Sussex until 6am.

The snow is expected to pass shortly before midday.

The long-range forecast by WXCharts is yet to be confirmed by the Met Office and is subject to change.

Light snow covered parts of the county earlier this month after a fall in temperatures.

Snow was spotted in Worthing, Crawley and on the South Downs with flurries also elsewhere.

The Met Office also issued weather warnings for ice in parts of the county when the snow hit Sussex earlier this year.
