VANCOUVER -- Don’t remove your snow tires just yet, because a severe cold snap that may be followed by a snow dump is on the way.

Global TV meteorologist Mark Madryga said the shivery days coming up could be record breaking.

Environment Canada is calling for a low temperature of minus seven for Thursday, and minus 8 for Friday, both of which would break records for coldness, if the forecast comes to pass. The previous cold record for Feb. 24 is minus 6.5 in 1993 and the average minimum temperature is two degrees. For Feb. 25, the previous cold record is minus 5.2, also in 1993, and the average minimum temperature is two degrees.

Sunday morning it got down to minus four at the airport, with the record low at minus six.

“All of the weather charts are strongly showing Arctic air punching down over us,” Madryga said. “We’ll probably get a lot colder than minus four by Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

“We could be flirting with minus 10 on Thursday and Friday, along with a strong wind that will make it feel even colder.”

ARCTIC winds left large areas of Britain under a thick layer of snow yesterday.

Plunging temperatures led to heavy falls in the north of England and parts of Scotland and the Met Office warned that winter is far from over.

Families woke up to three inches of snow in Leeds and the forecast is for more snow on higher ground during the early part of the week.

A driver had a lucky escape when his car skidded off the road after blizzards hit the A66 near Bowes in Co Durham.

The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for much of Scotland and England’s higher regions, which extend as far south as the East Midlands.

There is some respite on the way for the South, however, with London expected to be enjoying periods of sunshine on Wednesday as temperatures climb to a mild 12C.

Shoppers searching for signs of an early spring have been buying daffodils in record numbers. Supermarket chain Waitrose says sales of British daffodils have jumped by a third compared with this time last year.

The running 30 day mean is about to take another drop. One sees how CYCLICAL the overall pattern is with an up and down, biased up when we are warming, down when we are cooling. But the site I posted Friday will be fun to watch. Given what we are looking at globally to end the month, we are going to see a fall to .1 below normal in the running 30 day mean by the end of the month.

So on March 2, when the data comes in, see if I am right

ciao for now ****

Last gasp of winter despite signs of spring by John Bingham

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.

BBC News: South Korea chaos after 'heaviest' snowfall

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.

Don't pack the winter woollies away just yet - snow is forecast to return to parts of Britain by the weekend as temperatures plunge once again.

The Met Office warned that the mercury could drop dramatically over the next few days - bringing the chance of snow showers to the North East and Scotland.

And even though the temperatures will remain above freezing in London and the South, blustery winds will make it feel lot colder.

The return of winter follows a drier than normal January - and the coldest December since records began 100 years ago.

Met Office forecaster John Hammond said western parts of the UK would see milder weather - but that temperatures would be lower in the north.

Sysco, the largest wholesale food distributor in the US and primary supplier to most supermarket chains, has declared force majeure (the "act of God" clause) that allows suspension of contracted prices and supply of fresh fruit and vegetables due to the "unprecedented magnitude" of "devastating" and "extreme freezing temperatures" in a "very broad section of major growing regions in Mexico." Sysco also reports "Florida is normally a major supplier for these items as well, but they have already been struck with severe freeze damage in December and January and up until now have had to purchase product out of Mexico to fill their commitments, that is no longer an option."

At first glance it looks like a graphic from a Discovery Channel programme about a distant ice age. But this astonishing picture shows the world as it is today - with half the Northern Hemisphere covered with snow and ice.

The image was released by the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Association (NOAA) on the day half of North America was in the grip of a severe winter storm.

The map was created using multiple satellites from government agencies and the US Air Force.
