Ramsbottom is to be hit with snow and ice which will last a month as temperatures plunge to what could feel like -17C!
At least, that’s what some sources would have you believe.
Yet again, tabloids are making audacious claims that we can expect to be in for freezing snow which will last up to a month.
Headlines such as this from the Mirror:
UK weather forecast: SNOW to cover Britain ‘for a month’ as deep freeze hits
UK SNOW: Arctic weather system sparks HEAVY SNOW today as Britain set for COLDEST weekend
from The Express (which lets face it, they have this headline every other week).
The Guardian went with the simple:
UK weather: snow and ice warnings as cold snap forecast
It’s certainly gotten colder but I don’t think we’re about to need to stock up on food or anything. However, we are a community led….community, so do please look out for your elderly and vulnerable neighbours.
Keep warm and enjoy winter as it should be.
