LAST Sunday, Berkshire woke up to heavy snow falling thick and fast, which soon settled into inches on the ground and made for a fun day outside for many families.

With temperatures set to drop again this weekend, could we have another white weekend?

According to the Met Office, Reading and Bracknell are set to expect a cloudy and rainy Friday today (January 29), with temperatures dropping to 2 °C by the late evening.

A snow and ice warning has been put in place across areas of Berkshire for early next week, including Reading, West Berkshire and Wokingham.

The warning is in place for Monday only (February 1).

Snow, with a risk of widespread ice, is likely to push slowly northeast from late Monday, bringing difficult travel conditions.

Possible travel delays on roads can be expected, with bus and train services potentially delayed or cancelled.

Some road closures may be in place and longer journey times are possible.

Power cuts may occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected and there will be a chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.
