The Met Office has recently released its long-range outlook, covering the whole of winter, from December until February, predicting a much colder winter than normal and urging all to take extra steps to keep warm.
Wandsworth, London -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/08/2016 -- For the past few years the UK has seen mild, wet and stormy winters, however this year people are being urged to prepare for much colder and drier weather conditions throughout the winter period. But why is this? One huge difference this year is the state of the stratospheric polar vortex which is much weaker than normal this year and will therefore probably weaken the westerly jet stream over the Atlantic Ocean making high winds and copious amounts of rainfall highly unlikely. In addition to this, sea surface temperatures in the eastern Pacific Ocean are much cooler than they typically are at this time of year, nearing the threshold for La Nina, suggesting that this winter is going to much colder than we have seen for a while.
A spokesperson from a leading supplier of stoves, flue systems and fireplaces in London, Stonewoods, was keen to comment saying, "We have seen numerous articles throughout the web and in print also predicting a freezing cold winter, much colder than we have seen for a while – with several sources urging people to take extra precautions to stay warm and avoid winter illnesses. It is vital that at this time, all homes have appropriate heating systems in place, such as the superior fireplaces and stoves that we offer here at Stonewoods, and we thoroughly urge all homeowners to ensure that this is the case."
