Winter jackets may be needed as arctic weather returns
Bookmark and Share
Those planning to go walking in the next few days may need winter jackets and plenty of other warm clothes as meteorologists have predicted severe weather on the way again.

Following the recent snow and subsequent thaw, sub-zero temperatures and blizzards are coming back this week and the Mountain Weather Information Service is warning of tough conditions on the hills.

It said: "Higher Scottish summits will be minus 13 C and across all mountain areas, in northerly gales, wind chill will be severe or extreme."

England and Wales will not be spared as the Lake District and Snowdonia are tipped to experience snow and high winds.

As well as winter jackets, four-season walking boots and extra food may be needed for those who are venturing out.

Futher snow will however be good news for those donning their ski goggles, as it could lead to more slopes being available in Scotland's resorts.

Ski conditions currently vary, with most of the Cairn Gorm lifts available but limited skiing at the Lecht and Glenshee sites, while in the west Highlands Glencoe still has insufficient snow to operate and the Nevis Range is closed for maintenance before opening this weekend.
