What controls the weather in the UK?

Winter weather & transportation

Snow, ice, wind, storms, floods, fog - the winter season can bring a host of extreme weather which can impact on all transportation networks. As such, there is an obvious need for regular weather forecasts and updates (i.e. for informing gritting routes, applying speed restrictions etc).

Roads and railways are extremely vulnerable to extreme winter weather, yet they are integral to everyday life.
