AS the weather turns a bitter cold throughout the county this week, we have taken a look into when Reading can expect to see some snow.

According to the Met Office, the rest of the week will see colder conditions spreading across the UK, which will be accompanied by frosts, hail and sleet, particularly from mid-week onwards.

Officials have said that although Reading might see some snow, it will be "short lived."

Reading is likely to see temperatures drop further as the days progress, with predictions of a sub-zero "feel".

Throughout the rest of the week, locals can expect the town to hit lows of 3 or 4°, but Friday is set to feel as cold as -2°.

The Met Office confirmed that snow is expected heavily in northern counties, with the south expected to experience snow more transient in nature.

Steve Ramsdale, Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “Although we’re going to see a few days with colder conditions, we shouldn’t be surprised that the start of winter brings a brief spell of wintry weather.

"Some parts of the UK, especially northern hills, may see snow, but for many this will only be short lived.

"We'll be monitoring the forecast and we will issue warnings accordingly."

It is expected to remain dry with some clear spells this evening and overnight.

It will turn locally chilly in Reading, with some fog patches and a touch of frost, especially in some rural spots. There will be clouding over from the northwest by end of the night. Minimum Temperature -1 °C.
