The Met Office has issued a Level 2 Alert and Readiness for Cold Weather. There is a 70% probability of severe cold weather/icy conditions/snow between Saturday and Tuesday in parts of England – including the Okehampton area.
There is a possibility of snow Monday which could bring 2 to 5 cm across England as the weather system moves southeastwards. More than 5 cm could fall over hilly areas.
Please take extra care and check on elderly or ill neighbors. Remember, you will use more oil during cold conditions. Please check your oil tank and proactively order fuel before your oil level gets low. Cold and icy weather typically means longer delivery times, so please remember this when deciding if you need to order fuel.
