Possible disruption due to adverse weather

Much of the UK is forecast to be affected by adverse weather conditions in the next 48-60 hours, coinciding with one of the peak travel periods as folk will be moving around the country to be with friends and family for Christmas.

As a result of the forecast a number of train operators are already announcing changes and cancellations to their services on December 23rd and 24th and anyone planning to travel during this time is advised to check with the train operators on a regular basis.


All other forms of transport are also expected to be impacted to varying degrees right across the UK so anyone planning any journeys should keep in touch with developments via the Met Office website, and/or local news and travel bulletins on the radio and tv.


Take care and safe travels

East Coast trains are taking tickets dated for tomorrow on today's trains and are making frequent announcements on the service I'm on to avoid travel tomorrow unless it's early as severe disruption is expected.

Very grim news for Christmas travellers.

It snowed in Nottingham yesterday but didn't settle and we had high winds. Currently it is quite calm.

Travelling conditions in the south of England are diabolical right now - wet and very windy. I wouldn't want to be on the motorway.

Similarly wild in Edinburgh. It was fine this morning, now we have a storm passing through.

Batten down the hatches!

Unexpected result of the hair raising weather. Holiday makers coming into town for Christmas have decided to hit the supermarkets before going to their lodging so they can cuddle in and not go out again once there. Along with the locals getting their Christmas supplies, floods and high wind this has caused chaos.

The carparks and roads are chocka with little movement of traffic, stocks (yes the Christmas lorries with supplies are in force too) will be low.

Just watched 2 boats turn over in the harbour due to heavy rain and gales. That is unusual.
