Warning of a cold blast of winter
Wednesday 12th December 2012, 4:24PM GMT.
JERSEY will be hit by a blast of wintry weather on Thursday, with a small risk of snow during early morning.
A band of sleet is expected to push across the Island during the second half of tonight, and forecasters are warning that it could fall as snow for a short time.
The wintry weather is also expected to cause icy surfaces to develop across the Island. However, the freezing conditions which have gripped the Island for several days will quickly be replaced by milder Atlantic air during tomorrow morning.
Speaking to the JEP on Wednesday morning, Jersey Met Office forecaster Adrienne Le Maistre said: ‘There will be some icy surfaces around first thing and it is likely that we will get some sleet for a time tomorrow morning, and there is a small risk of some short-lived snow, but we are not expecting any accumulations. It will all turn to rain during the morning.’
