Hail and snow batter Kent as storms bring thunder and lightning to the county

26 March 2014
by KentOnline reporter

It may be spring - officially - but no-one's told the weather.

A severe hail storm earlier this afternoon left parts of Kent under a thin carpet of white.

Thunderstorms also hit Medway, and snow was said to be falling over the villages around Sevenoaks.

The top of Blue Bell Hill has also seen a flurry of the white stuff, with Maidstone having a sleet shower.

Kent MP Tracey Crouch even tweeted that snow had forced a football match to be cancelled - just days before we're predicted to have unseasonably warm weather.

Now weather forecasters are predicting more wintry showers into this evening.

The forecast for the region predicts "outbreaks of showery rain falling as sleet over hills and perhaps down to lower levels for a time."
