Snow flurries have been spotted across Bucks this morning.

Light sleet has been coming down on and off in High Wycombe and the surrounding areas – but no snow warnings have been issued for the county and it has not settled.

According to the Met Office’s website, there is a 50 per cent chance of precipitation until 11am, when it goes down to 10 per cent – with temperatures plunging to 2C.

It comes after the county has seen some warm weather in the past week or so, with temperatures on Easter Sunday rising to highs of 15C.

The BBC is predicting highs of 7C today from around 3pm, while the Met Office says sunny intervals could be seen from 2pm onwards, with temperatures going up to 5C by 3pm.

Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said: “There’ll be a drop of 11 degrees between one day and the next, so you will definitely notice it.”

Mr Partridge explained that a change of wind direction would bring a change in the atmosphere, leading to chilly weather in the coming week.

He said: “The air we had on Sunday came in from the south so it’s pretty mild having come off the continent.

“Overnight we’ll see a cold front moving southward across the country, it’s already across northern Scotland, and it’ll push its way southward overnight.

“That will introduce much, much colder air across the whole country.”
