DESPITE temperatures dropping this week, Hampshire residents might not be set to see snow. 

As previously reported on Monday, the Met Office had forecast hail, sleet and snow across the county.

But now, weather experts are predicting that the rest of the week will be dry and cold. 

Today, temperatures are set to plummet, with a high of 6° and a low of 3°.

Further into the weekend and the start of next week, temperatures are sat to fall to -1°  in some areas. 

But the weather is set to dry up later tonight and remain that way until next week.

Steve Ramsdale, Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “Although we’re going to see a few days with colder conditions, we shouldn’t be surprised that the start of winter brings a brief spell of wintry weather.

"Some parts of the UK, especially northern hills, may see snow, but for many, this will only be short-lived. We’ll be monitoring the forecast and we will issue warnings accordingly.”
