A long-range weather forecaster is predicting Sussex and the rest of the UK will be in the grip of snow and ice for much of this coming winter.
Exacta Weather provides long-range forecasts and its latest predictions show that temperatures this winter will be below average.
The forecaster said changes in the Gulf Stream and low solar activity over the last year signal a harsh winter to come.
Exacta’s current long-range forecast states: “There have been no improvements since we first reported on these changes, if anything the overall situation has worsened.
“This now means that those who like cold and snowy winters will not be disappointed this year, in particular, in the UK, Ireland and the north/east coast of the United States.”
The Met Office provides an outlook for the next 30 days and is predicting some unsettled weather with chilly nights and local frosts.
