There are reports that the United Kingdom is going to face its coldest spring after a long time and there are quite a lot of consequences that will take place because of this late spring. There are quite a lot of unexpected things that will be unfolding in the United Kingdom this year due to the late spring. The following are some of the consequences that the United Kingdom and the people of the UK would need to face this cold spring.

Lack Of Feed For Birds
The late spring will mean that the hungry birds will not be having the insects of their choices to feed on. The cold weather will in no way help the migratory birds as well which have flown from different countries expecting spring in the U.K. Now, they might have already lost quite a few pounds of weight due to the long journey and to make matters worse later spring this year means less available food and insects. There is also every possibility for the bird mortality rate to be higher this spring. There is also going to be an adverse effect on the bird population this spring as only a good summer will be able to bring nature back to its good old self. This delayed and cold spring will do no good for birds that thrive in open nests and the young ones in these open nests could die due to bitter spring cold.

Blooming Of Flowers
There are quite a lot of natural things that will be affected due to the late spring and blooming of flowers in no exception. There is strong belief that the flowers that will bloom weeks apart will now start to bloom all at once due to the delayed spring. All the flowers might bloom at the same time producing an explosion of blooming flowers which is no doubt a treat to watch. This will be good news for flower lovers and people who are into gardening floral plants.

Slump In Clothes Sales

  • There is no doubt some affect as far as bikini sales in the United Kingdom are concerned.
  • This is due to the prolonging cold weather and the prediction of a cold spring this year round.
  • People in the United Kingdom have not come out fully to purchase summer clothing this year and hence there is a great slump in the clothes sales in the first quarter of 2013.
  • As people are not spending money on summer and spring clothing now, there is a great boost in the sales of home accessories this year.

Poor Road Conditions
There are a huge number of potholes that you will need to encounter on the United Kingdom roads due to prolonged cold waves and changing weather patterns. The potholes have become quite worse now and insurance companies report that claims for axle damage and suspension damages have raised to 12% in the first four months this year. There are also reports that the damages to cars in the U.K would be even more in the coming months.
