Scottish councils prepare for predicted harsh winter

Britain is set to feel the effects of an icy Arctic blast this weekend, with snow and sub-zero temperatures expected to hit Scotland particularly hard.

Parts of the country have already encountered snowfall this month, and a sharp drop in temperature over the next 24 hours increases the likelihood of Inverness, Aberdeen and other northern territories suffering the same fate.

Interestingly, bookmakers make Aberdeen the most likely UK city to see a white Christmas in 2017 – closely followed by Edinburgh.

Earlier in the week it was revealed that hundreds of staff and dozens of vehicles are on standby in Glasgow to ensure traffic disruption is minimised in the face of a climatic downturn.

Almost 1,500 salt containers have been placed across the city to ensure roads and pathways are suitably gritted over the next two months.

Governing bodies throughout Scotland have been quick to take necessary precautions and warned that thermometer readings will again be replicating the -5°C levels reached earlier this week.
