Met Office warns more ‘risk’ of snow across Reading, Slough and Newbury

The Met Office has warned there is a “risk” of more snow coming to Berkshire later this month. This follows parts of county waking up to blankets of snow yesterday following wintry showers overnight.

Despite temperatures slowly rising as we move closer to spring, the Met Office weather outlook states there is a “low risk” of snow towards the end of March and early April. This comes as periods of rain and strong winds are expected across southern England as the season changes.

The current outlook for March 23 to April 6 reads: “It’s likely to be drier further north, apart from occasional wintry showers, while rain and strong winds are more likely to be more of a feature in the south, with a low risk of snow at times, mainly on the boundary between these two regimes.

“Milder conditions may extend north periodically. Temperatures overall mainly around average, with milder spells in the south and colder spells in the north.”

Although forecasters have warned their predictions for this period are uncertain, we can also expect to see a slight increase in temperatures over the next couple of weeks.

After a cool end to the week with the mercury dropping to -3C on Friday night (March 10), temperatures will recover to 10C-13C next week which is more in line with expectations for this time of year.
