Cool spring after chilly winter will see delayed flowers
After a bitterly cold winter, forecasters are predicting a particularly chilly spring with a delay to many of the traditional signs that herald the new season. Britons have already endured the coldest winter in over a decade, with temperatures plunging to 0.4F (-18C) in some places.
The worst snowfall in 18 years brought the country to a standstill and just two weeks ago workers were still trudging through icy blizzards. But those looking forward to an early spring will be disappointed. The Met Office's spring forecast is predicting temperatures will be well below average of 45F (7.3C), affecting the cheering signs of a new season such as daffodils, young birds and even new lambs. It is a stark contrast with most of the last twenty years when only four springs have been below average, in 2006, 1996, 1995 and 1994, while the rest were warmer than usual.
