The BIG Freeze

Reproduced from todays media:


UK weather forecasters fear Britain could be battered by coldest winter for FIVE YEARS with temperatures plunging to -11C
Freezing arctic winds will cause widespread snow and ice across the country causing travel chaos in December and January, it's been claimed
BRITAIN will be frozen stiff in December and January with temperatures plummeting to a teeth-chattering -11C, forecasters say.
Weather experts are predicting this winter could be the coldest in five years with freezing Arctic winds causing widespread snow and ice resulting in travel chaos.
And the “big freeze” could start as soon as Monday with temperatures falling to -4C overnight.
All areas of the county could be affected making it the coldest winter since 2012/13.
That winter, temperatures dropped to -14C causing roads and railways to freeze over resulting in hundreds of deaths.
The Weather Company chief meteorologist Todd Crawford said: "We expect the coldest winter in the UK since 2012-13.
"We expect extended spells with a ridge of pressure in the North Atlantic, especially in early winter.
“This forces the jet stream up to the Arctic and back down into Europe, releasing Arctic high pressure from near the Pole directly into northern Europe, with colder-than-normal temperatures."
AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alan Reppert said: “Snow and ice will be a much higher threat this winter and could affect London.
"There is a higher-than-normal potential for temperatures below -10C further north in the UK."
