Motorists told to prepare for record harsh winter

Posted by Freddy Morton

Motorists, including those with apparatus and accessories for your camper-van , have been urged to prepare well in advance for the worst winter on record.

ATS Euromaster has advised drivers to pre-order cold weather tyres, as a leading UK meteorologist has predicted that this winter will "break all records" for snowfall and low temperatures.

Specialist long-range forecaster James Madden, of Exacta Weather, has correctly predicted the harsh conditions experienced over the last two years and insisted it is vital to start preparing now.

"The UK is to brace itself for well below average temperatures and widespread heavy snowfall throughout winter 2011/2012, which will result in the fourth bad winter in succession for the UK, and will prove to be the worst of them all," Mr Madden said.

"I fully expect records to be broken," he added.

Recently, an expert at the Institute of Advance Motorists warned that motorists and caravan owners need to be prepared for heavy downpours this summer.
