Weather experts have confirmed last month was the coldest March since records began in Northampton and warned more snow may even be on its way.

Meteorologists at the Pitsford Hall Weather Station this morning confirmed March was the coldest in decades, with snow falling in the days leading up to the start of British Summertime.

A spokesman for the weather station said there was still “no immediate indication” that spring weather was waiting to arrive, warning there was even the prospect of more snow drifting in from the east coast.

He said: “Having ended the coldest March on record in Northampton, there is no immediate indication that spring is about to begin across the county.”
