Prepare for another snow fall… the spring is still far away.

From the Timesonline.co.uk: “It hardly seems possible, but Britain’s big freeze is to get worse. Just as the country digs itself out of Monday’s snow and ice, another belt of snowstorms threatens to strike the southern half of the country on Thursday and Friday with the risk of another major shutdown of the economy. The depression that brought the first mass of snow has slipped southwards and is now slowly wheeling around in the Bay of Biscay. It is ready for a second attack, later today, beginning with rainshowers along the South Coast. Because the ground is already covered in snow, it behaves like a refrigerator chilling the air — so the rain will rapidly turn to snow as the depression heads inland.”

But when will the spring arrive? And why is Britain so badly prepared for snow? Read here to discover more!

Heaviest snow in 20 years hits London!

Timesonline.co.uk reports: “The heaviest snowfall in 20 years has closed thousands of schools and caused transport chaos up the eastern side of Britain, with London and the surrounding areas the hardest hit.

Six million bus passengers were left in the lurch as all London’s bus services were halted because of dangerous driving conditions, and every Tube line except the Victoria line was at least partially suspended.

Many mainline commuter rail services were also cancelled or seriously delayed, and flights at London’s airports were decimated, with both of Heathrow’s runways shut, Luton and London City closed, and Gatwick and Stansted flights subject to delays and short-notice cancellations.”

All the Europe is freezing and the weather forecast for the rest of the week is not one of the best… Have a look at the BBC website for the latest update!
