Britain to be hit by SNOW in October... forecasters warn an early winter is on its way

Britain is about to experience an early winter, with snow expected to arrive as soon as next month, forecasters have warned.

Temperatures over the next three months will plummet to below average with one long-range forecaster predicting snowfalls in October.

James Madden, of Exacta Weather, said: ‘I expect to see the first signs of some moderate to heavy snowfalls as early as October or November in certain parts of the UK.


I expect December, January and February to experience below-average temperatures, with the heaviest snowfall occurring within the time frame of November to January across many parts of the UK.

‘Huge swirly low-pressure systems also offer the potential for widespread disruption from heavy snowfall across many parts of the UK including the South, as they clash with the predominant cold air.’

He added that Scotland and the North would face the worst weather, including possible ‘blizzard-like conditions’.

The UK and Ireland have also been forecast to experience extreme cold conditions and snow from the Arctic for prolonged periods.

Netweather forecaster Paul Michaelwaite has also predicted ‘widespread’ snowfall as early as November.

He told the Daily Express: ‘Over the past four years November snow has not been rare at all, and with temperatures below the average there is the chance of some widespread falls.’

Meanwhile, The Met Office has said that below average temperatures in October mean there is a chance of upcoming overnight frosts, which would be seen predominantly in the Midlands and south-east.

And Weather Services International agreed that October, November and December would be hit with temperatures approximately two degrees lower than the average.

WSI’s chief meteorologist, Dr Todd Crawford, told the Express: ‘We currently expect the coldest temperatures to be confined to western Europe.’

Last winter parts of the UK experienced up to 30 inches of snow and temperatures fell to -19C.

The UK has already been hit by Hurricane Katia this month, which has left Britain’s clean-up bill at around £100 million, experts said last week.

The storm was the worst Britain has seen in 15 years after winds of up to 80mph left a trail of devastation.

Where I live (East Anglia), it seems quite mild - I have not bothered with the central heating yet.

I'm in Gloucestershire and the temperature's dropped a bit but it's still mild for this time of year. I can't wait for the snow though Smile It's when it all goes to mush and brown it's horrible.
