Bitterly Cold Weather Batters UK

Since the weekend (25th February), weather warnings for snow and plummeting temperatures have put the UK on high alert.

For many across the country, snow didn’t appear until Tuesday and by Wednesday, the persistent snowfall and freezing temperatures forced schools and businesses to close. Multiple news outlets reported a red weather warning for many parts of the UK.

The Met Office issued weather warnings via its Twitter account

Before long, hashtags such as #uksnow, #stormemma and #snowmageddon began trending on Twitter and members of the public took to the social media platform to share their pictures and experiences in the sudden snowfall.

Others reacted to the sudden snow with humour

Across the UK, 20+ train operatives cancelled or reduced their train services and some stations were closed all together. (BBC)

ITV News reported that more than two feet of snow had cut some remote villages off claiming that some country lanes had become “impassable”.

Police and local authorities advised against anything but the most necessary travel after four people died in a crash on Tuesday.

Motorists are advised not to drive unless necessary

The Met Office reported that the bitter weather could last for as long as next week. A spokesperson claimed there could be a chance of freezing rain tonight (1st March): “a relatively rare weather phenomenon in the UK.”
