24th November - Today's News: Prolonged Cold & Snow Expected in Britain

And so it begins. Winter 2010/11 that is. Down to -1.8c this morning with a good frost on the ground and temperatures expected to be much lower over the coming days. Some indications we could see snow in the Vale as early as tomorrow morning, though more likely on Saturday night and again next week. And model output suggests this will not be a short wintry blast but the start of a prolonged spell of cold weather. Prolonged cold snap and significant snowfall forecast. And already the cold snap causing road problems in north of Scotland.

However, despite its severity, the number of deaths due to cold weather fell last winter.
