We’ve all had our fill of the wet and windy storms that Ciara and Dennis brought to Berkshire – travel chaos, flood damage and wins of up to 60mph in some areas.

Ands it’s likely that we’ll be divided on the merits of any future snowfall in Berkshire.

But that’s just what’s on the cards for March, as the weather forecaster are predicting the white stuff for several days before spring hits, reports MyLondon.

According to forecasters Accuweather, snow is now predicted to fall on six separate days next month.

Their long range forecast shows snowfall is now due on the following days:

  • Sunday, March 1
  • Thursday, March 12
  • Tuesday, March 17
  • Friday, March 20
  • Wednesday, March 25
  • Saturday, March 28

A spokesperson for  weather experts The Met Office previously explained to MyLondon why the South East seems to get less snow than the rest of the UK.

They said: “Not all areas of the UK have the same climate and weather conditions.

“The South East of the UK, including London, is a one of the driest areas of the country with some of the warmest temperatures, especially in the summer.

“It is also important to mention urban areas are usually warmer than surrounding rural areas.

“All this means that the temperature is less likely to fall low enough for snow, any precipitation is more likely to fall as rain, and when snow falls it is more likely to melt quickly and less likely to build up on the ground.”
