If you thought last week was as cold as you could bear it, brace yourself. Forecasters say the worst is yet to come, and this winter could be the harshest since the Thames froze over more than three centuries ago.

Temperatures for December are the coldest on record, with the average reading close to minus 1c – almost six degrees below normal.

And with forecasters warning that this winter’s ‘mini ice age’ might last until mid-March, this winter could be the worst since 1683-84 when a fair was held on the Thames.

‘Dense cold air is just north of Britain and will Met Office figures show that the average temperature from December 1, the first day of winter, to December 28 was a bitter minus 0.8c (30.5f).

This equals the record December low of 1890.

But, with the mercury traditionally at its lowest in January and February, and more bracing weather on the way, this winter could bring the biggest freeze in 327 years.

TRAVEL chaos returned to the UK today as the latest Big Freeze rolled in icing up roads and railways.

A 17-year-old boy was killed when his car careered off the road as motorists were warned they face "possibly the worst driving conditions imaginable".

The Met Office has issued severe weather warnings for nearly the whole of the country.

Heavy snow storms are set to blanket nearly every part of the UK tomorrow as a fresh blast of Arctic weather sweeps in.

London and the South East will be among the worst hit - but Scotland, the North East, the Midlands and the South West could also see another TEN inches of snow.

Public Warning: Solar Climate Change from Christmas Day to the End of December

Image AttachmentA THIRD period of "Solar Climate Change" on the UK will take place from Christmas Day to the End of December, this comes right after the first & second periods correctly predicted by WeatherAction.com & Piers Corbyn

The forecast made in November says....Snow deluges and blizzards in most of England and Wales, heaviest in East parts. Snow showers in Scotland. Sleet/rain and less cold in far West Ireland.

This "triple hit" of "Solar Climate Change" announced to WeatherAction.com users in November, means that the UK will go on to complete the "worst ever" December for High street retailers and business with the lack of essential public service due to road/rail/airport closures and again bring the country to it's knees, and with "road salt" running out fast this "third" wave will take it's toll on the "holiday" work force.

This is likely to add to one of the worst if not THE worst period of disruption in the UK to have been seen in modern times.

I will repeat what was said on the previous statement as this will still apply....

There are potential "life threatening" conditions that will be underestimated by the media (inc. Met Office).

With the aid of this forecast we hope to give some advance warning to those of you who are already suffering hardship and warn you of a very real risk of further and even bigger snow storms and blizzard conditions set for Scotland & England and Eastern Europe.

Please spread news of this forecast to all of those who are vulnerable and try to ensure that food supplies are sufficient to cope with this impending crisis.

Spring may be on the way but parts of Britain face a last gasp of winter with warning of heavy snow in some parts.

The Met Office issued a severe weather advisory covering many parts of Scotland and higher ground in northern England and as far south as the East Midlands.

Many upland areas can expect around four inches today, some could see as much as six inches of snow while low-lying parts could face disruption from slush.

But with icy conditions for some, forecasters said there would be a marked “north-south split” with mild spring weather for others.

Temperature in South West England are set to reach the low 50s Fahrenheit today (SAT), markedly above average for the time of year with more mild, spring-like conditions on the way next week.

“There is a real north-south split there,” said Helen Chivers, a Met Office forecaster.

The heaviest snowfall in more than a century on South Korea's east coast is causing widespread chaos.

Hundreds of houses have collapsed under the weight of the snow. One newspaper described it as a snow bomb.

The South Korean government has deployed 12,000 soldiers to rescue stranded residents.

The worst weather has been in Gangwon province. Weather experts say there will be more snowfall in the area in the coming hours.

"I am 83 years old. It's the heaviest snow in my life. I am really grateful for the soldiers' help," said Park Chae-ran.

The BBC's Nick Ravenscroft in Seoul says that although winters are colder than anywhere else at its latitude, with frequent frost and snow, this year has been different.

January was the coldest since the 1960s.
