Snow will fall on Saturday in the Chilterns, says forecaster
IT will be a cold weekend with snow falling on Saturday, a Bucks forecaster said.
Jim Dale, of Hazlemere's British Weather Services, said there could be mixture of rain and snow on Saturday throughout the day.
But he said: "First of all it is still unclear in the long term whether we are in for a short spell of wintery weather or a protracted one.
"The jury is very much out in terms of how long it might last."
Mr Dale said it will definitely be a frosty weekend with temperatures -1 to -3 across the area.
He said: "There will be a rain/ sleet/ snow recipe set for Saturday day time. "Snow will be more likely the higher you are in the Chilterns."
He said rain will be coming across from the South West which will then hit the cold air in South Bucks. He said there could be outbreaks of snow all day long but it could be a mixture of snow and rain throughout the day.
Mr Dale said there could be between one and four centimetres of snow.
He said rugby and football matches on Sunday morning are going to struggle because of the freezing temperatures but said Sunday will be a dry day.
And he said residents should put in a little bit of preparation and grit footpaths and make sure the essentials are in their car eg. blankets.
He emphasised it is a forecast not an actual because it is too early to say on Thursday morning.
