Freezing weather still has its grip on the UK
January 18, 2016
Freezing temperatures are continuing to hold Britain in an icy grip, but the unseasonably mild weather that we experienced in the run up to Christmas is expected to return by the end of the week.
After the winter fun we experienced at the weekend begins to clear we will be left with cold clear skies and dry weather that will continue to bite well into Wednesday. The Met Office has said the topsy-turvy weather we have so far experienced this winter will return this week with the re-emergence of double digit temperatures that will arrive by the end of the week due to a blast of warm air sweeping in from the Atlantic Ocean.
The warm air will boost the mercury but with it will come wet and windy weather with Met Office forecaster stating:
“By the time we get to Thursday it will be 10C in the South-West, and on Friday we will probably be into double figures a bit more widely. It won’t be as mild as we saw in December, but it certainly will be mild for this time of year.”
There is still a yellow weather warning for ice in force for north-west and north-east England, Yorkshire and large sections of southern Scotland.
It also issued snow warnings for the Strathclyde and the central, Tayside and Fife area.
In England, there is a small chance of snowfall around Birmingham and Leicester, as well as Lincolnshire and Humberside today and Tuesday.
Don’t be caught out with this unpredictable weather, avoid those surprise rain showers with Jolly Brolly. We have a wide range of umbrellas to protect you from the elements, such as our selection of golf umbrellas, not just perfect for the links, but a great way to shelter from surprise showers when out and about.
