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

Looming U.S. Winter May Repeat Cold, Snow by Brian K. Sullivan
Saturday, September 17th 2011, 7:44 AM GMT

The winter of 2011-2012 will probably be colder than normal for much of the northern U.S., although a repeat of the worst of last year’s East Coast snowstorms is unlikely, forecasters said.

A cooling in the Pacific Ocean known as La Nina is predicted to return this year, joined by another season of frigid Arctic blasts caused by pressure differentials over the North Pole and northern Atlantic Ocean.

“We’re looking at a cold start to the winter with maybe a mild finish,” said Matt Rogers, president of Commodity Weather Group LLC in Bethesda, Maryland.

Forecasters are predicting the coldest weather from the Great Plains to the Great Lakes, along with heavy snows across the northern tier. Cold weather is likely to increase demand for heating and power-plant fuels.

The coming winter may be colder than both the 30- and 10- year averages, increasing heating demand, said Travis Hartman, a meteorologist at MDA EarthSat Weather in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Nov. 1 to March 31 will probably be 7 percent colder than the 10-year norm and 1.3 percent colder than last year, Rogers said.

New York City may be hit by several snowstorms, according to Hartman. He doesn’t expect a repeat of the past two years, when snow records fell in Central Park and some city streets were unplowed for days.

Australia's summer forecast: Fair chance of disaster

AUSTRALIANS have been warned there is no room for complacency this summer, with weather forecasters making predictions of bushfires, cyclones, torrential rain and severe thunderstorms.

Queenslanders, still recovering from last summer's disasters, have been told to brace themselves for threats from multiple fronts.

Fire crews across the country, from the northern fringes of Victoria right up to the tropical north, are on alert amid fears huge tracts of dry vegetation - overgrown thanks to the big wet of last summer - could ignite.

Bureau of Meteorology deputy director-general Bruce Gunn yesterday told a closed-door briefing of Cabinet ministers that at least four cyclones could form in the Coral Sea and may cross the Queensland coast.

Thunderstorms look likely to batter Queensland's southeast while the state's north and parts of NT could be swamped by heavy tropical downpours and an above-average number of cyclones.

The return of La Niña means increased rain in the north and east of the country and cooler temperatures.

Early Winter Snowfall Predicted For Ireland And UK by Mark Dunphy

A long range weather forecaster is predicting an early start to winter 2011-2012 for many regions of the United Kingdom and Ireland. James Madden of Exacta Weather says heavy snowfalls are likely in places as soon as late October and early November.

Last week, UK-based Positive Weather Solutions also predicted that the winter months will be colder than average everywhere and that some regions will experience significantly colder than average temperatures between December and March.

The agency, which has a relatively high success rate in its long range weather predictions, has also given a 36% chance of the Ireland and Britain experiencing a White Christmas. This prediction in reflected in the latest odds from William Hill Bookmakers who have given shortened odds of snow falling on Christmas Day.

The bookmaker have also given odds of 16/1 that the lowest recorded temperature in England will be beaten (-26.1C, Jan 10 1982, Shropshire), and even odds of 100/1 that Big Ben Fails to chime due to being frozen solid and that the Thames will freeze over between Westminster Bridge and Tower Bridge.

The chilly long range forecasts also follow the coolest summer since 1986 in many parts of Ireland and since 1962 in parts of the southwest. The highest temperature recorded this summer was 25.5°C at Oak Park, Co. Carlow on the 3rd of June.

Forecaster predicts heavy snow in January – again by Daniel Fisher

A BITTERLY cold winter and prolonged snowfall may hit Wales for the third year in a row, forecasters warned yesterday.

Welsh forecasters are suggesting long-term heavy snowfall could wreak havoc again across the country, especially in January and February.

The past two winters have been especially cold in the UK, as high pressure systems settled over northern Europe, preventing warmer air currents crossing in from the Atlantic.

December last year was the coldest in the UK for about 100 years – and Cardiff saw its heaviest snowfall for 30 years.

The Met Office has forecast a colder-than-average start to the autumn, while Welsh forecasters Positive Weather Solutions are already predicting a white winter and freezing temperatures in January and February.

The Met Office is predicting a return to dark cloud, wind and rain this weekend, with minimum temperatures hitting single figures overnight.

Forecaster issues dire weather warning for upcoming season.

Ireland is going to be snowed in again this winter – and for many years to come according to a world renowned weather expert.

Long range forcecaster James Madden has predicted another ice age winter for Ireland after record snow levels in December and January.

The Exacta Weather expert has warned that Ireland will experience record low temperatures and huge snowfalls again this winter.

The Irish Examiner reports that a drastic alteration in the flow of the Gulf Stream coupled with Icelandic volcano eruptions and low solar activity are combining to lead to the severe weather warning.

Scientists think Britain and Europe could be in for a chilly few years predicting a 'Little Ice Age' could be on its way in just a few decades time.

Average temperatures in Britain could fall by two degrees centigrade, according to the study led by Mike Lockwood, professor of space environment physics at Reading University, because of a drop in the amount of sunspot activity.

Sunspots are darker patches seen in the sun's surface which are caused by small areas of magnetic activity which disrupts the normal flow of intensely heated gases.
