Is the warmer weather finally here?

Finally we can report on some nicer weather! Our blustery winter conditions are soon to be replaced by some slightly warmer weather. Ok so probably not warm enough to get our swimsuits out and the air conditioning on but we are in England; let’s take anything we can get!

Many parts of the country last night were disrupted with heavy snow fall and those who were travelling on high ground were left stranded but all this is set to change!

According to Sally Webb at the MeteoGroup, “Heavy rain falling across much of England and Wales this morning will clear through the south-east around noon, leaving a largely dry and sunny day. There will be isolated showers along western fringes, particularly in Scotland.

“It will stay dry overnight with clear spells and widespread frost and temperatures getting down to 0C in most places, and minus 2C in places like Cheshire. Tomorrow there will be sunny spells, though Scotland is still likely to see some showers over into Saturday, but elsewhere it will be largely dry and sunny throughout the weekend.”

Despite this promising weather to come, it will probably be short lived as towards the end of next week things will start to get cooler again.
In East Yorkshire yesterday gritters and snow ploughs were called to help reduce the reduction to some of the inevitable disruption to travel. 40 vehicles had been stuck on the road until they were rescued. As most of the country will be experiencing warmer weather, other parts will just be getting rain instead of snow which could mean icy conditions.
