Having seen unusually high temperatures for the time of year, weather forecasters have issued warnings saying that we will see temperatures plummet by up to 20C degrees in places and we should get prepared for the arctic weather which is set to hit the UK by the weekend.
High pressure is still keeping things fairly settled today, however the weather is set to turn over the next week, with rural areas seeing the lowest temperatures from Saturday onwards. According to meteorologist Carol Kirkwood from BBC Breakfast, the artic weather front will arrive towards the end of the week, when the wind will switch directions, significantly reducing temperatures due to the freezing chill factor of the gusts.
In the outlook for Halloween, perhaps your vampire capes and witches cloaks won’t be quite enough to stay warm as things aren’t set to get any warmer and snow is forecast for the higher ground in the UK. Many of our customers at TateOil will fall in to this category and so our lorries are currently working flat out stocking up heating oil reserves for homes across Yorkshire.
It has been claimed that for those that haven’t been scared off by the potential snow on 31st of October, you could be facing one of the coldest Halloween in 100 years with temperatures dropping to -7C. Roads could also be affected in the worst hit areas so we’re advising customers if you’re going to need a delivery of oil in the near future, get your order placed as soon as possible to ensure you can stay warm.
A possible shock to the system following a blissfully hot summer – as we look ahead, there are reports that November will be colder than average with the possibility of snow which is rare at this time of year. Stay safe and stay warm – and if we can help, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
