Winter weather on the way for Hitchin

The weather in Hitchin is going to start feeling less like autumn and a lot more like winter over the course of the next week.
Last year's frosty weather in Hitchin
Temperatures in Hitchin are expected to reach lows of -5 during the night, bringing the threat of tricky driving conditions in the mornings.
This morning saw Hitchin experience its first (if very small) sprinkling of snow for 2012. Although snow is not expected to hit this region this week it is advisable to be prepared now, rather than wait and get caught out in a couple of weeks.
Leading advice for motorists during the cold weather suggests making some very small but essential changes to your routine to ensure you stay safe. Leaving for work 15 minutes early so you have enough time to de-frost your windscreen completely and having those extra few minutes to get to work will allow you to take your time and be more cautious on possibly icy roads.
