Just when we thought we had seen the worse of the UK winter, EXTREME COLD has gripped parts of Scandanvia. with some areas experiencing the lowest temperatures in 12 years...
❄️ According to the Swedish Met. Institute. In the past few days, the mercury dipped to minus -41.6 😮
❄️ 1,000 cars were trapped in snow for up to 14 hours on a main road in the south of the country
❄️ The army was deployed to help stranded passengers
❄️Schools closed as the temperature was considered dangerous (even by Swedish standards!)
❄️ Finland was also hit with the cold weather and 2 people killed in an avalanche
What does this mean for the UK? Several forecasts are suggesting widespread and disruptive cold weather across the UK within a couple of weeks. We have seen what a slight change in wind direction can do e.g. the 'Beast from the East' weather event from a few years ago and also the crazy snowfall dump on Cumbria just a few weeks ago.
PREPARE NOW, order your ice grips and other cold weather gear because there's a good chance your postie might not get it to you if you wait until it starts snowing!
