As was predicted in a previous article linking low solar activity to cold winters (www.urbanbite.com/news/AUTUMN_LEAVES.asp) it looks like we're going to have to face weeks of bitter cold.
Temperatures last night reached minus 11 degrees Celsius in Buckinghamshire and forecasters are expecting a maximum of 2C across the UK today.
For the first time a Level 3 Cold weather Alert has been raised by the Met Office. This is the second most serious alert level and organisations such as Age UK have been set in motion to try and help the most vulnerable sections of society to face the problems raised by the cold spell.
Snow is expected to arrive this weekend and this might cause traffic problems and delays with deliveries so if you're planning to order a meal online from www.urbanbite.com please expect slightly higher than average delivery times.
