ISLANDERS should brace themselves for heavy snowstorms tonight and tomorrow as Arctic air blasts across the Channel Islands and the rest of Britain.
The Met Office have warned that snow showers, possibly prolonged and heavy at times, are likely to affect the Island tonight and tomorrow. They say that about an inch of snow could fall during the next 24 hours.
Although Jersey missed most of the bad weather this morning, the snow elsewhere caused scores of flights to England and Guernsey to be delayed. And islanders in Guernsey woke to unusually wintry scenes as storms dumped up to three inches of snow across the island overnight.
Jersey’s Principal Met officer Tony Pallot said that the amount of snow which fell in Jersey today would depend on the wind direction. He added that the wintry weather was likely to continue for at least the next 48 hours.
