Snow set to disrupt businesses in Birmingham this weekend

Posted on 03 December 2013 by editor

Up to 20cm of snow is forecast across England and Wales this weekend and is set to disrupt the retail sector and transport systems. Temperatures are due to drop by approx 8 degrees during the day, to around 2 degrees. Businesses are being told to prepare by ensuring that they have adequate salt, and where roads and access is required to ensure that it is cleared using a snow plough or alike.

The retail sector, which appears to have enjoyed a healthy November could be hit as shoppers avoid venturing out in the cold weather.

The forecast for Monday and Tuesday looks set to be mainly dry but rather cloudy, with light winds and the odd brighter spell. On Tuesday rain is expected to spread southwards across Scotland, moving across England and Wales on Wednesday.
