UK weather: Arctic eruption with strong winds, sleet and snow this week | UK News

Winter appears to have arrived in parts of the UK this week, with sub-zero temperatures and strong winds warnings for most of the UK.

The need for a hat, scarf and gloves comes as a shock to many after a very mild first half of November.

Temperatures in rural England dropped to minus 3 or minus 4 degrees on Monday night, but this is only the beginning of a very unsettling period in the UK.

The start of the week is stable thanks to the high pressure.

However, the low pressure system will move down from the northwest, bringing with it increasingly colder air later in the week.

In Scotland, snow is expected over 600m on Wednesday, but this cold weather will spread to lower levels on Thursday morning as more icy air blows from the Arctic.

The Bureau of Meteorology said the weather will continue to be cold and unsettling through Friday.

Strong winds are expected for Scotland on Friday, a yellow warning is issued for the rest of the UK on Saturday and severe gales to the west are possible.

Sky’s weather presenter Joanna Robinson said: “It’s still unclear exactly where the strongest winds will be, but gusts can reach 50 to 60 mph and in some northern coastal areas they can reach 70 to 80 mph.

“If there is a strong northwest wind, it will be chilly.

“In the case of snow, it is difficult to predict a few days in advance when there are often marginal conditions across the UK.

“Friday and Saturday look much more disturbing with a mix of rain, sleet and snow. The snow is temporary and is likely to be confined to the highlands.”

The temperature on Saturday is expected to be around 4-6 degrees, but the wind will make it feel much colder.

Many will be awakened by frost next Sunday and Monday with daytime temperatures expected to be around 6-7 degrees Celsius.

Meanwhile, the Bureau of Meteorology said the UK is more likely to face wetter winters in the coming months, urging households to prepare for flood risk.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology forecast, the winter is more likely than average for the three months from November to January, and is most likely to be wetter in January and beyond.

The request came at the start of Flood Action Week, when it published survey results suggesting that three-fifths (61%) of households in flood-risk areas did not believe their property could be affected.

70% of households in risk areas have taken some action to prepare for flooding in their homes, while 30% have done nothing. This could mean that up to 1.5 million households at risk of flooding if replicated across the UK are unprepared.
