Snow Could Be On It’s Way For The Start Of Spring

The first day of Spring is officially on Wednesday and snow has been predicted.

Tomorrow is the last day of the “meteorological winter” although forecasters predict weather will be far from springlike.

Experts have predicted heavy rain, strong winds and hail will arrive this week with falling temperatures and heavy snowfall in places. Cold air from the Arctic will push temperatures below freezing across most of the UK over the next couple of nights.

We have already had snow in some areas of the country and more is predicted sooner rather than later.

That is why Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire want you to be prepared.

Rock Salt is often used both residentially and municipally for managing ice. Rock Salt is used to manage ice because brine which is a solution of water and salt has a lower freezing point than just ordinary water. Therefore by simply putting salt on ice this will cause it to melt. It is common for people to spread Rock Salt on their paths and driveways after a snow storm to melt the snow. It is also common for people to lay Rock Salt before a frost or snowstorm to prevent ice from forming.
