Severe Wintry Weather set to Cause Chaos for UK
Issued: 1045: Wednesday 22nd February 2006: Status: Red:
Not withstanding further localised wintry outbreaks during the course of this week; a period of severe wintry weather with blizzards, bitter winds and hard frosts is set to strike the UK across the week beginning 26th February. The Arctic-like weather will be felt in the east and north of the country at first, spreading to all other parts during the course of the week. Dislocation of traffic, school closures and emergency rescue situations are all expected to figure, in what is set to be the most severe spell of weather this winter.
