Motor insurance: Snow predicted for tomorrow

Wednesday, 07 February 2007

Heavy snowfall is forecasted to begin in the UK on Thursday with massive disruption predicted on the nation's transport system, according to weather experts.

The Met Office has warned that many areas in the south of the UK may see up to five centimetres of snow with up to 15 centimetres of the white stuff set to hit the Midlands.

South Wales, London and much of central England may also see a lot of snow and people planning journeys are being told to check the situation with regards transport on Thursday morning before setting off.

Derek Brockway, the BBC's weatherman, said: "Most places will see between two to five centimetres of snow, but parts of south mid and east Wales - the valleys, Monmouthshire and Powys - could see as much as ten or 15 centimetres."

He added that this is due to a trough of low air pressure from the Arctic and it will move on to France after hitting the UK.

Drivers should be extra vigilant during inclement weather conditions so as not to have an accident which would harm their cheap car insurance premiums.
