Met Office warns of difficult driving conditions


Although tomorrow is the first day of spring, a cold snap being experienced in certain areas of the country could bring difficult driving conditions to many road users, the Met Office has warned.

Caravanners in the eastern side of the UK should take care, as Met Office forecasters are predicting a change in the wintry showers towards this direction.

Paul Davies, chief forecaster at the Met Office, said: “Squally winds with gusts up to 60 mph and sudden reductions in visibility, will make for difficult driving conditions at times.”

After a period of warm weather towards the end of last week, temperatures have dipped across the UK and wintry weather has been witnessed in some regions.

Early signs are reported to have emerged of further snow for mid-week, bringing an increased threat of disruption.

Wintry showers are forecast for today (March 20th), with sunny periods interspersed with showers of hail, sleet or snow.
