Record-breaking snowfall predicted for November. (See warning below about taking this with a grain of salt.)
Forecasters last night warned the entire country is set for a horror freeze which will bring brutal winds and fierce blizzards.
‘We are looking at a potentially paralysing winter, the worst for decades, which could at times grind the nation to a halt,” said Jonathan Powell, forecaster for Vantage Weather Services.
‘Persistent cold snaps with some very heavy snowfall are likely, and I would not be surprised if some records are not broken this year.
James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather, said it was likely to be the worst winter for more than 100 years.
“A horror winter scenario is likely to bring another big freeze with copious snow for many parts,” said Madden. “This is likely to produce major disruption to public transport and school closures on a prolific scale.”
November could turn out to be a record-breaking month. There is the potential for some significant falls of snow. The northern half is likely to experience the worst conditions.
Take with a grain of salt“Just a small warning,” says reader in the UK. “The Daily Express is a paper which comes between the ‘quality’ newspapers like the Telegraph, the Times, the Independent and their Sunday equivalent, and the Red Tops which really deal just in gossip.””It seems to have three standard front page headlines — tax, health and weather. And all should be taken with a grain of salt.”It might well be right about the Arctic weather to come in Britain, but our weather is so changeable that you can’t rely on what they say especially as the Express relies on full-page, catchy headlines to sell its papers!”
