Drivers warned of keeping medication and musical instruments in cars overnight
Musical instruments may be prone to damage
Musical instruments should always be taken inside to avoid inadvertently damaging them in a cold snap.
Violins, guitars and cellos, plus other wooden instruments are vulnerable to shrinking and expanding in cold temperatures, which will damage or break the glue joints, making them out of tune at best or at worst, unplayable.
Spare batteries may burst and leak in the cold
Batteries will run out of energy sooner due to the cold temperature affecting the electrochemical reactions within the battery, and alkaline batteries can even burst and leak.
