UK weather – Britain could be hit by FOUR MONTHS of snow in ‘coldest winter for a decade’ after heatwave

The UK enjoyed a long, hot summer but winter is tipped to bring harsh conditions

BRITAIN will endure "crippling snowfalls" from November which could lead to the coldest winter in a decade after a record-breaking summer heatwave, an expert has warned.

The mercury often rose to 35C throughout July as the UK enjoyed a long, hot summer but winter is projected to respond by bringing harsh conditions.

Speaking to The Daily Express, James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather, warned that Britain could be hit by four months of snow.

He said: “November is looking like a mixed bag of weather this year and there are signs that amidst stormy weather will be the first proper snowfall, temperatures for the month are expected to possibly be below average.
“All our long range projections have been showing for quite some time that December is likely to be a colder than average month overall and we are expecting several widespread snowy periods early in the month.

“The period between Christmas and New Year is looking interesting as there are likely to be some major low-pressure storm systems hitting the UK and these will clash with much colder air over the country bringing potentially crippling snowfalls and ice storms.

“This year we are expecting potentially hazardous winter conditions from early on in the season.”

He also projected that snowy periods will continue into January and February, with the Express reporting that this could lead to a repeat of the 2010/11 big freeze which saw the coldest December since 1910.

The Met Office said that it does not provide detailed forecasts beyond 30 days.

However they have issued a yellow warning for tomorrow, stating that rainy conditions are likely to lead to flooding of homes and businesses.

The warning adds: "Spray and flooding on roads probably making for difficult driving conditions and longer journey times.

"Bus and train services probably affected with some journey times taking longer."
