We’re not ones to blow our own windsocks, but back in November, we reported that Britain could be facing the ‘coldest winter for a century‘. Well, reports today suggest that the prediction just may come true.
Severe ‘yellow’ weather warnings have been issued for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week across the UK. Furthermore, a much stronger ‘amber’ warning has been issued for areas of Scotland. 40ft swells off the Scottish coast have been predicted.
While you may think this is an ideal time to get your surf board out, coast guards have warned that the sea in affected areas could become ‘phenomenal’. We think they mean that in a negative way.
With winds of up to 70mph expected, several train lines have already been canceled. Freezing winds are expected to peak in severity on Wednesday, but remain until Thursday.
While it may be tempting to go out there and make the most of the conditions that the storm brings, remember to stay safe out there. Keep up to date with the Met Office, and your trusted local news services.
