The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for snow in Hastings. There is a chance of snow settling with disruption to road, rail and air services, as well as interruptions to power supplies and other utilities.
With rail strikes already causing severe disruption to commuters, the chance of snow will bring new risks and further disruption across the country.
Heathrow airport has already cancelled 100 flights, due to the forecast snow. The North East, Yorkshire and Cumbria have been hit with power cuts, as a result of 60mph gale force winds.
The severe weather is caused by an influx of weather coming in from the Arctic.
The Met Office has said that the heavy rain across southern Britain can rapidly turn to snow as cold air is drawn in. Overnight, rain, sleet and snow will clear away, leading to widespread ice rapidly forming on untreated surfaces.
Unfortunately for Hastings, it seems as though many surfaces may be untreated. Hastings Borough Council does not provide grit bins or fund them, leaving the responsibility to East Sussex County Council. Whilst East Sussex County Council will be gritting parts of roads leading into Hastings, such as the A259 and A21, the sections of the roads in Hastings itself will not be seen too, meaning there is a risk of danger for drivers.
