    Thread: Winter is coming for all my Brits out there!

      Beetle Winter is coming for all my Brits out there!

      Just thought I would share a blog article from my company with you. Bundle up everyone!!!

      Britain is experiencing a surprise cold snap that has caused freezing overnight and thick frost in the morning. Fortunately, there will be some relief from the chilly temperatures in the coming days, according to The Daily Mail.

      "This sort of weather is far from unprecedented for this time of year, but it is noticeable because of autumn being a season of contrasts," Met Office spokesman John Hammond told the news source. "Only a few weeks ago we were enjoying temperatures as high as 20 Celsius."

      Many Brits are likely used to cold temperatures, but traveling backpackers may not have been prepared for the turn in the weather. Those who have loved ones visiting the UK may want to send an international money transfer to their rambling relatives to pay for extra blankets and warmer outerwear.

      Though temperatures are expected to rise over the weekend, Hammond told the news source that there will likely be a second cold snap at the beginning of next week due to an impending shift in wind direction.

      According to predictions from NetWeather.tv, many regions of the UK will experience below average temperatures in November and December, with a dry, cold January to follow.

      I'd happily take some cold weather, it's forecast to be mid to high 80's here this week.
      Ugh.. it's going to be a short winter!

      Its been winter here since october, snow has covered our yard from then till now and it barely gets above freezing if we are lucky, mostly about 30 bellow freezing day and night. I can't wait for warmer weather because I get so depressed I just want to go home.

      The weather has been terrible all over the world this last 12 months, let's hope it picks up soon.
