Wind & Rain On The Way
It certainly doesn’t feel much like February at the moment,
does it? In actual fact, today (February 20th) has been the hottest
day of the year thus far and the hottest day of winter so far as well… all
thanks to a sweep of warm air coming in from the Caribbean.
While this might make your members of staff want to pull on
their workwear tee shirts instead of their jackets, you’d be wise perhaps to
advise them not to put their winter workwear away just yet… the weather’s about
to take a turn for the worse!
Met Office representative Nicola Maxey explained that from
the 21st, temperatures will start to drop (and become a lot more
typical for this time of year) and we can expect to see wind, rain and even
some snow in some parts of the country start to push their way in, according to
“On Monday, parts of Scotland will see some early rain
pushing in that will sink southwards through the day and behind that rain the
system will introduce some colder air. When that rain makes its way south it
will ease, without the cloud around it’s going to be a cold night,” she said.
All this means is that your workers will need to be prepared
for all eventualities, so make sure their personal protective equipment is in
good condition and that anything that needs replacing goes in the bin. And, as
ever, it’s important that they were high visibility clothing no matter what the weather
is doing so that they can stay safe on site, whatever job you have them doing.
