Of course it is still winter here in the UK, but there is some weather on the way that could surpass some of the really bad winters that have been endured in the UK. All a big if, of course…..but…
It’s a weather event called “The Beast from the East”. It’s where very cold winds from Siberia and Russia make their way across Northern Europe into the UK. It does happen, not often, but it does happen.
There have been some severe winters here. 1947, 1963, 1979, 1981, 1987, 2009, 2010 to name but a few. What is coming in 2018 could see temperatures by day below freezing and night time down to minus 15 or so. Allied to that, there will be significant falls of snow too. This may well be a major weather event which will grind the UK to a halt. How long it’ll last is open to doubt. But the “Beast from the East” is on the way. Wrap up warm and stay safe.
