|This may be a common sight soon again in Aberdeen and other parts of the UK|
Gritter/plow teams have been training in order to make sure that there are no icy roads when Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visit Aberdeen on Monday.
After a record wet and chilly summer, "global warming" is continuing in the UK:
After a wet spring and a washout summer, you might have thought we were owed a fine September of warm sunshine.
Well, dream on. The Indian summer appears to be over already.
You’ll need jackets and umbrellas from today and while you’re at it you might want to look out a scarf and gloves.
Temperatures started plunging last night with some parts of England and Wales falling to 0C (32F) overnight.
Widespread ground frosts in northern and central areas were also expected this morning – with gritting vans seen on the roads in some northern areas.
In Scotland temperatures were expected to drop to -4C (25F) in the early hours with icy conditions on high ground.
