UK weather forecast: Brace for coldest winter in EIGHT years – heavy SNOW to hammer UK
Reports in the Daily Express on November 25th this year say that UK weather will take a turn with the country to be bombarded with heavy snow and bone-chilling -13 C temperatures as arctic conditions from Siberia are set to bring the coldest winter in eight years.
Britons should brace for a “battleground scenario” over the next few weeks as snow blankets the nation, a forecaster has warned. The big chill will bring 32 days of treacherous ice and heavy snow with temperatures plunging to as low as -13C in parts. Eleanor Bell, meteorologist for the Weather Company, said: “We expect this winter to be different to the last seven milder winters we have had, with an increased risk for colder intrusions across the northern half of Europe and below normal temperatures through January and February.” But the cold snap could begin as early as next week.
Ms Bell added: ”We do think that next week’s ‘battleground’ scenario could recur several times in the weeks ahead, giving the potential for further snowfalls in the run-up to Christmas.”
Forecasters have blamed the bitter forecast on fewer mild Atlantic spells and arctic chills.
Leon Brown, meteorological at The Weather Channel, said: “This winter looks colder than normal.
