As autumn slowly gives way to winter and the nights draw in, the time has come to consider what preparations are required for the months ahead.
The Met Office provides data on ground frosts and snow falls across the UK and estimates that annually in low lying areas within England and Wales, snow falls approximately on 20 days of the year with upland areas receiving snowfalls around 35 days of the year. Generally snow will not lay on the ground for too long although in the Scottish Highlands it can lay for up to 60 days or more. It is unusual to experience snowfall above temperatures of 4°C.
Ground frosts are more common than air frosts and are most prevalent in December, January and February although frosts in late April and May are not uncommon.
Heavy frosts are obviously most likely to occur in what we generally consider to be mid-winter months and can frequently cause chaos on our roads and other transport networks.
