Scots are being encouraged to take time now to prepare for winter rather than wait until severe weather strikes.
If there is anything recent winters have shown us it is that Scottish weather is unpredictable. In the last five years, most parts of Scotland have been affected by severe weather ranging from snow and freezing temperatures to high winds and flooding, and we also saw the terrible impact of flooding in Alyth last July. While extreme weather can happen at any time of year, winter remains the time of greatest risk.
The unpredictability of weather patterns means we cannot simply hope that we will miss the worst of it. While we can’t stop the weather causing disruption, we can be well prepared to cope with it. By taking some time now, we can make sure we are ready in our homes, workplaces, communities and when we travel this winter.
