The UK Met Office has distanced itself from recent media reports that the UK and Ireland are set for an ‘Arctic Winter’. The UKMO, which stopped issuing seasonal forecasts in 2010, also has said that recent long range forecasts by other agencies “bear no relation to the kinds of weather that forecasters at the Met Office are currently expecting”.

iWeather Online (IWO) also has forecast that Ireland and the UK are unlikely to see a repeat of the pre-Christmas freeze of 2010. Temperatures are expected to remain below average for much of the coming season, however, according to the IWO forecast.

In an opinion piece for The Times, UKMO Chief Executive John Hirst called for a sense of reason in response to the claims (read 1, 2, 3) of other forecasting agencies in weeks.

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.

Heavy snow is set to return to parts of the UK over the next two days, the Met Office has warned.

After a freezing Christmas Day, the temperature climbed on Sunday - but that looks set to prove only a temporary reprieve from the cold weather that has caused travel chaos across much of the country over the past ten days.

The Met Office has issued severe weather warnings for today, with showers likely to add to snow already lying in northern England, Scotland and Wales.

Meteorologists expect the situation to deteriorate during the early hours of Tuesday morning, as a band of snow moves across the country.

London, the West Midlands, Yorkshire, the south-east, north-west, north-east, east and south-west of England are facing the prospect of 10cm of snow, with 15cm expected on higher ground.

Heavy snow has blanketed parts of Britain with up to 10 inches expected over the next 24 hours as the Big Freeze intensifies.

Forecasters said that cold conditions were expected to continue into next week as a white Christmas becomes more and more likely.

Treacherous driving conditions were reported on the roads caused by widespread ice amid concerns for rush-hour travellers.

The heaviest snowfall last night was in northern Scotland and Northern Ireland with parts of Wales and south-west England also affected.

Police in the Scottish Highlands have warned commuters not to travel in icy blizzards with temperatures as low as -6C. A section of the M2 in Northern Ireland was also closed due to heavy snow.

Public Warning: 'Worst snow blizzards in a century' set to hit Britain
Wednesday, December 15th 2010, 8:26 PM GMT
Co2sceptic (Site Admin)
Britain will be buried by the worst blizzards in almost a century in the coming days - as 12 inches of snow and 60mph-plus winds create 6ft snowdrifts and cause transport chaos.

Forecasters said up to a foot of snow will be dumped across Scotland, northern and western England from tomorrow morning, with several inches in the south.

Gale-force winds will create 6ft snowdrifts expected to shut dozens of main roads and threaten railway line closures - likely to lead to widespread school closures and millions struggling to and from work.

Forecasters said the blizzards will be more serious than an infamous blizzard in the cold 1962-63 winter and the worst to hit Britain since 1927.

Then, a 12-hour blizzard on Christmas Day night left 20ft snowdrifts across the south and south-east, with villages cut off for a week and supplied with food by air-drop.

Public Warning: Solar Climate Change Extended to the 20th December

Image AttachmentThe next period of "Solar Climate Change" that will influence the UK will take place from 17th - 20th December, this comes right after the first period we announced between the 14th-16th, see also updated notes from Piers Corbyn, inc. Our next WeatherAction Weather period 17-20 Dec predicts EXTREME COLD with 'records likely to be broken'. This means a very severe ice hazard because it will be too cold for road salt to work in a lot of Central, North & NorthEast parts of the UK.

The "double hit" of Solar Climate Change that was announced to WeatherAction.com users in November simply means that the "Christmas economy" for High street retailers and business with the lack of essential public service due to road/rail/airport closures will bring the country to it's knees during the NEXT 10 days.

This is likely to be 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.
IT'S A WHITE CHRISTMAS by Nathan Rao

Image AttachmentBRITAIN will have a white Christmas, with Arctic blizzards bringing up to eight inches of snow.

Snow will blanket London, the South-east, Scotland, the North and eastern England as bitterly cold winds roar in, weathermen warned yesterday. Snowfalls on Christmas Day are now a “foregone conclusion”.

“It will be nightmarish – no one will escape a return of the cold weather,” said Jonathan Powell, senior forecaster for Positive Weather Solutions.

Unlike the snowfalls earlier in the month which crippled large parts of the country, the next wintry blast will also see gale-force 50mph winds blowing directly from the North Pole. These will bring the risk of giant snow drifts in some regions.

The Met Office has severe weather warnings in place for the whole of the UK this week.

They increase to high risk alerts for Thursday and Friday in the North, West and South-west.

Forecaster Helen Chivers said: “It doesn’t look good. There really is a severe weather front moving very quickly across the country, starting in the North and moving south on Thursday. By Thursday night the whole of the country will freeze solid, with snow and rain turning to ice really quickly.
