Winter Weather Set To Hit The UK - UK Christmas World
Parts of the UK this morning woke to the news that sever weather is heading their way. We have been some what lucky so far this winter and have experienced relativly mild temperatires for this time of year. However, it seems like this is about to change.
The Met Office this morning issued a sever weather warning for Strathclyde, the Highlands, western isles, Tayside, Fife and central Scotland. According to the MET Office website, up to 15cm of snow could fall on high ground, with 1-3cm of snow on low level inland areas, while ice is likely to form on untreated surfaces.
It is possible that this cold and wintery weather could be moving south towards the rest of the UK in the next few days so it is advised that we prepare for what is to come and stock up on the winter necessities. Chances are that the weather will be nothing like it was last year, however we will get snow. If you can remember the chaos last year, there was a shortage of rock slat as soon as the bad weather hit. Stocking up on rock salt is highly recommended during the winter months. Rock salt is ideal for treating your driveways, pathways and patios to help reduce the amount of ice/snow build up when the temperatures fall.
As we all know, the snow ploughs tend not to help us dig our cars out of the snow. In fact, when they do plough your road they tend to push the snow to the sides of the roads causing your car to get buried. Picking up a durable snow shovel is a further winter essential. It is recommended that all vehicles which are traveling in wintery conditions to carry a snow shovel with them in their automobile. Similar to the rock salt shortage of last year, snow shovels were also in high demand and many place across the UK rapidly ran out of stock.
