February More Snow and Ice... Wintry Showers -10ºC

Severe weather warnings have been issued as forecasters predict heavy snow will fall in large parts of the UK in the coming days.
Wintry showers are expected to hit the north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland on Wednesday and Thursday.
The Met Office warned of widespread wintry showers as temperatures plummet close to -10C by the end of the week.
A statement by the Met Office’s chief forecaster said:
“An active cold front is expected to push south-east across the UK during Wednesday introducing an increasingly cold and unstable air mass."
There is a brief milder spell on Friday before the cold returns, there will be a noticeable wind chill and widespread frosts with overnight lows of -8C.
"There is certainly a very cold snap on the way."
The dramatic u-turn in the weather is due to the jet stream once again moving southwards over the UK.
A displaced polar vortex apparently...

Not too much Snow where we are at the moment.
There is NO snow where we are going for February !!
28ºC

Sky News:
A "potentially historic" storm could dump as much as 3ft (90cm) of snow on the Northeast and snarl transportation for tens of millions of people.
The Genesis for the UK ? ...

Meanwhile, in Canada, life is perfectly normal under 3ft of snow... Grin

The 'worst snowstorm in history' shuts down the East Coast of America:
Five states declare emergencies, the National Guard is deployed and New Yorkers rush home before up to three FEET of snow buries the city
It looks like all public transport in New York may be shut down, depending on the severity of the Snowstorm, according to UK Channel 5 News report from NYC.
Sky News at Ten also...

Meanwhile, in the UK, 3 inches of Snow will probably affect Public Transport !!

Anyway PlusComUK, if you're so concerned about the pollution that diesel engines emit, why are you jetting off on holiday (presumably) on a mode of transport that burns kerosene (ie diesel in any other name) and probably emits far more pollution when taking off than several thousand diesel engined cars?
