    The forecast from Unisys for the next 10 day indicates much more snow and very cold weather covering the Balkans and Turkey.
    A series of Arctic lows is expected to slide South East from Iceland towards the Aegean and then Lebanon over the forecast period. The low will produce wintery weather on the coastal regions of Western Europe, becoming increasing cold and snowy as they wrap more cold air from Russia as they sink South East.
    Be safe and listen to national weather alerts advice over this period.
    I wish everybody a happy new year, and hopefully a much more peaceful 2017.
