Snow and ice bring travel chaos to UK

Flights cancelled and drivers hit by holdups as heavy snowfall and falling temperatures disrupt Christmas getaway

Friday 17 December 2010 18.01 GMT

Heavy snow and freezing conditions returned to Britain today with travel chaos expected over the weekend as forecasters predict more snow.

Britain's second largest airport, Gatwick, warned it might be forced to close and easyJet said tonight it was suspending flights there between 6am and 10am, coinciding with an expected snowstorm.

Some parts of England are expected to be hit with between 25cm and 30cm of fresh snow, just as many up and down the country begin the big Christmas getaway...

  • Heathrow Airport closed for most of today
  • Hundreds of drivers trapped on M6 overnight
  • Ambulance skids off road and kills passenger inside
  • Backlog of up to 4m parcels could remain undelivered
  • Urgent appeal for blood donors after concerns of shortages
  • Grit to be shared amid fears of cold snap until January 14
  • Odds shortened even further on ‘White Christmas’

Millions of Britons were facing travel chaos today as snow and ice left motorways and airports closed and train services disrupted.

Heathrow Airport has cancelled all flights between 10am and 5pm today, with further problems at Gatwick and in Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Overnight blizzards and plummeting temperatures buckled a huge chunk of the country's road, air and rail networks on the busiest weekend for travel and shopping before Christmas.

As the mercury plunged, hundreds of drivers were forced to spend the night in their cars on the M6 after a lorry jackknifed at midnight.

The North West was hit with deluges of up to 10in of snow while parts of the south were also blanketed overnight, with blizzards expected in parts of the South East and Midlands today....

Australia in Spring (September-November 2010

Wettest spring on record for Australia. Individually, most states had a very wet season, with the NT, Queensland and NSW all having their wettest spring on record, and all states except Tasmania in the top 10 wettest. Maximum temperatures were generally much cooler than normal, with the exception of western WA, which was much warmer than normal. Minimum temperatures were close to normal: cooler than average conditions dominated the interior, while coastal areas tended to be warmer than normal.

Nationally-averaged maximum temperatures were 1.23C below normal for spring, making it Australia’s 4th coldest spring on record. Most of Australia had cooler than normal daytime temperatures, except the western coast of WA, the far tropical north, Tasmania and the far southeast of the mainland. Daytime temperatures were at least 1C below normal in a wide region stretching from the eastern half of WA across to the eastern Australian coast. Anomalies of 3C below normal were closer to the interior of the continent, in central Queensland and also a region surrounding the SA-NT border, with anomalies of at least 4C below normal surrounding Alice Springs. Much of this area had their coldest spring maximum temperatures on record. ...

Koma tmar, koma r, Vilhjlmur.

"Recent research published last month found a link between low levels of sea ice in the Barents-Kara Sea, north of Norway and Russia, and an increased probability of harsh winters across Europe such as the cold winter between 2005 and 2006. These sea ice declines associated with warmer oceans could triple the probability of cold winter extremes in Europe and northern Asia, according to Vladimir Petoukhov, lead researcher for the study, and a climate scientist at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany"

"Warming oceans, thought by many to be associated with climate change, are contributing to reductions in sea ice in the Arctic area. Computer models suggest that a reduction in sea ice in the eastern Arctic leads to a loss of ocean heat and a consequent warming of the lower atmosphere which can trigger atmospheric circulation anomalies that can in turn lead to an overall cooling of northern continents, according to Petoukhov's research which was published in the Journal of Geophysical Research in November. This can result in a continental-scale winter cooling reaching, on average, ?1.5C colder than it would otherwise have been."
