We may not have had a white Christmas but it would appear that that’s all about to change, with snow and sub zero temperatures forecast for the UK. UK thermometer’s are set to plunge to -10C this week, with a bitter Arctic blast bringing up to 2 feet of snow to the Scottish Highlands. As the clean up from storm Frank continues, more heavy rain is forecast, with snow expected in the north by Friday.
According to the Met Office, December was the warmest and wettest month for the UK in more than a century.
James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather, warned Britons to brace for a “shock to the system” as the cold sets in. He warned torrential rain threatens further flood misery in parts this week with heavy snow and blizzards about to unleash mayhem.
