  • Brits to be hit by Storm Gladys chaos in WEEKS

    BRITS will be hit by Storm Gladys chaos in just weeks as a bone-chilling icy plunge looms.

    A “wintry blast” will bring snow and frost during the first week of March while the country moves into spring.

    British Weather Services’ senior meteorologist Jim Dale warned March can bring “some of the snowiest” conditions.

    Jim said: “Very often, March can deliver big winds and it can deliver short-lived snow events.”

    Weather forecaster WXCharts forecast up to 5cm of snow in Manchester by Friday while Edinburgh and Newcastle will see 3cm of snow.

    Scotland can expected around 1cm of snow per hour a day while cold wind will plunge most of the UK to feel sub-zero.

  • Cold air from east to move across UK, warns expert

    Brian Gaze, director and forecaster for The Weather Outlook told The Sun: “Towards the end of this week colder air from the east is expected to start moving across the UK as high pressure builds to the northeast.

    “At the moment there is uncertainty about how long it will hang around for and how much temperatures will fall.

    “The coldest conditions could well be in the south and east of the UK and that is where wintry showers would be most likely.

    “However, as milder air tries to return from the southwest next week there is a chance of longer periods of snow for a time close to the boundary between the cold continental and milder Atlantic air masses.”

  • Severe impacts could take place sooner

    Professor Richard Betts said, “Many future climate-related risks are more severe than previous IPCC assessments, increasing the urgency of cutting greenhouse gas emissions to limit future warming to as low as possible.”

    It was thought that severe impacts will happen at a higher temperature, but it is now thought they could take place sooner (at lower temperatures).

    In order to prevent the worst of global warming caused by climate change, the report made clear action needs to be taken soon (within the decade).

  • Planning for the weekend and hoping for the best?

    Luckily, the weekend will be pretty much dry!

    We’ll have settled weather with clouds and sunny spells across the North East. Further South and East, these spells will be between periods of light rain and drizzle.

  • There is a ‘chance of longer periods of snow’

    Brian Gaze, director and forecaster for The Weather Outlook told The Sun: “Towards the end of this week colder air from the east is expected to start moving across the UK as high pressure builds to the northeast.

    “At the moment there is uncertainty about how long it will hang around for and how much temperatures will fall.

    “The coldest conditions could well be in the south and east of the UK and that is where wintry showers would be most likely.

    “However, as milder air tries to return from the southwest next week there is a chance of longer periods of snow for a time close to the boundary between the cold continental and milder Atlantic air masses.”

  • Downpour expected mid March

    The Met Office has warned strong winds, frost, freezing temperatures and coastal gales are on the cards.

    Their forecast for March 7 – Wednesday, March 16 reads: “As we move through the period there will be an increased likelihood of spells of rain, potentially preceded by snow, arriving from the west.

    “Winds will likely strengthen through midweek with an increasing likelihood of coastal gales.”

    Its thought a big downpour will hit on March 11, enveloping most of Scotland, northern England, Northern Ireland and western Wales.

    And forecasters reckon four inches an hour of snow could fall in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Newcastle, and the Lake District.

    Outbreaks of rain and drizzle across western Dumfries and Galloway will gradually spread eastward through the day.

    Turning largely dry across western Dumfries and Galloway through the afternoon.

    Breezy southeasterly winds at first, but lighter winds later. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

    Cloudy with some outbreaks of rain and drizzle continuing, mainly for East Lothian and eastern Borders, where it will turn heavy and persistent for a time. Minimum temperature 5 °C.

  • UK forecast for today

    The UK can expect to see many outbreaks of rain today with some sunny spells appearing in the east.

    The Met office have said: “Largely cloudy, with outbreaks of rain in many western parts, slowly moving east to be replaced by clearer skies already in far west.

    “Some sunny breaks in eastern, especially southeastern parts. Windy at first in the north. Mild, especially southeast.

    “Rain continuing to slowly move east, clearer skies following with a few showers for western coasts.

    “Light winds, frosty under clearing skies with chance of patchy freezing fog by dawn.”

  • Colder air from the East coming

    John Hammond, chief meteorologist for Weathertrending said: “There are indications that an area of high pressure, developing over Scandinavia early next week, will begin to push colder air from the east in our direction on a raw wind.

    “Just how cold and how snowy is much less obvious and, with the strengthening spring sunshine, a severe spell becomes much less likely.

    “There are some computer models that suggest some very cold air and the potential for snow later next week. However these are still in the minority.

    “It’s certainly not possible to give specifics about where or when snowfall, if any, may occur. But inevitably the high ground of northern Britain would be most prone.”

    Widespread snow will fall on March 11, according to WXCharts
