Uk weather warning
BRITAIN is braced for snow in the next two weeks as parts of the UK are set to be blasted with icy weather. Dramatic weather charts show areas of the UK will be hit by 5cm of snow before February, as the "Beast from the East" brings plunging temperatures. According to the Met Office the temperature will drop well below average in the last week of January, with snow beginning to fall at the end of next week.

BRITAIN'S weather will be divided down the middle today - with some basking in glorious wintry sunshine while others will endure dreary thick cloud. Weather watchers in the South will enjoy wall-to-wall sunshine for much of Wednesday as temperatures here reach mid-to-high single figures. But it will be an entirely different picture for the north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland - where cloud cover will make for a grey day. Here, temperatures will struggle to reach above 3-4C - with the risk of scattered showers making for an even more bleak scene. In a weather update, forecasters from Meteogroup UK said: "It will be dry and sunny for central, southern and western areas. "However, it will be mostly cloudy along eastern coasts as well as much of Scotland and Northern Ireland. "In the afternoon, rain will affect Scotland and Northern Ireland, most of which will be light and patchy. Gentle winds for most." But a similar North-South split tonight will see frost develop in the South … [Read more...] about UK weather forecast – Britain SPLIT between glorious wintry sun and thick cloud today… will YOU see the good weather?
THE “Beast from the East” will return to batter Britain with heavy snow and freezing temperatures through March, the Met Office weather forecasters have confirmed. The same UK weather warnings and patterns from last year that sparked the cold wave have been spotted again. It said a sudden stratospheric warning had appeared during the Christmas period when there was a sharp increase in temperatures. When this happens in the Arctic it can lead to a rush of cold air blowing eastwards across Europe in the next couple of weeks, bringing freezing temperatures to the continent. An icy blast of freezing Siberian winds bringing frosty temperatures and heavy snow to most of the UK early last year is what caused the Beast from the East, a Met Office forecaster said. However, the Met Office stressed some parts of Britain will see above average temperatures for January over the weekend. Spokesman Grahame Madge said that another Beast from the East could not be ruled out, but the current … [Read more...] about UK weather forecast – ‘Beast from the East’ will batter Britain with heavy snow and freezing temperatures until March warns Met Office
