NETWEATHER forecaster Nick Finnis has warned that Brits are going to see the return of a proper winter

#, saying: “There is a cold shock on the way. “Cold Arctic air looks to spread south across all parts during Tuesday.”

He continued: “The westerly flow will be sourced from a very cold North-east Canada, and it will probably be cold enough for showers to be wintry in nature, particularly over higher ground.” 

Alongside this, Met Office Chief Forecaster, Steve Ramsdale has said that temperatures will get, “notably colder weather coming into the north from early on Monday.

“This colder air is expected to push southwards into Tuesday bringing wintry showers and frosts. Wind and snow warnings have now been issued for parts of Scotland associated with this change.”

  • Showers expected this evening as weather turns wintry

    We may have had a mild New Year’s weekend but conditions are beginning to take a bit of a turn for the worst.

    The Met office says this evening will see further showers or rain in places, occasionally heavy and blustery in the west; fewer in the east, where there will be longer clear spells.

    Some snowfall in northern Scotland later.

  • Britain will ‘PAY for it’s mild start to 2022’

    Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, said Britain is about to ‘pay for’ the mild start to 2022.

    He said: “The unusually mild weather is not going to last, and we are going to pay for it as we go back into a wintry situation.

    “It’s going to turn notably colder with the risk of further snow. Winter is not over by any stretch of the imagination, and a taste of proper winter may be about to come back to haunt us.”

  • Make your car visible in poor winter weather

    You can be fined up to £1,000 for failing to switch your car lights on when you’re driving.

    Make sure they’re all working before you set out on your journey, and turn them on if you have to get out to clear snow.

    If you use fog lights, remember to switch them off when visibility improves so they don’t dazzle other drivers or obscure your brake lights.

  • Three tips to know before driving in snow and ice

    Driving expert Jack Cousens, head of roads policy at the AA, has some useful advice.

    He said drivers must take it slow and leave plenty of space for the car ahead in case they skid off the road.

    And with motorways expected to be busier than ever as Brits rush to celebrate a family Christmas for the first time in two years, staying out of danger is extremely important.

    Here are Jack’s top tips:

    • Make space, it’s not a race
    • Slow and steady
    • Beware of ‘black ice’
  • ‘Paying’ for it

    Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, said Britain is about to ‘pay for’ the mild start to 2022.

    He said: “The unusually mild weather is not going to last, and we are going to pay for it as we go back into a wintry situation.

    “It’s going to turn notably colder with the risk of further snow. Winter is not over by any stretch of the imagination, and a taste of proper winter may be about to come back to haunt us.”

  • The return of weather conditions from the Atlantic

    Met Office Chief Forecaster, Steve Ramsdale, said: “We’re now past the peak of the high temperatures over the UK of this current spell.

    “Whilst it is expected to stay mild for the rest of the weekend, we are seeing a trend downwards in temperatures with notably colder weather coming into the north from early on Monday.

    “This colder air is expected to push southwards into Tuesday bringing wintry showers and frosts. Wind and snow warnings have now been issued for parts of Scotland associated with this change.

    “This cold spell is temporary before we see a return to weather conditions coming from the Atlantic, bringing further bouts of strong winds and rain to the UK.”

  • A cold shock is on the way

    Netweather forecaster Nick Finnis said: “There is a cold shock on the way. “Cold Arctic air looks to spread south across all parts during Tuesday. 

    “A deep low-pressure system towards Iceland later in the week looks to drive a strong and showery Polar maritime westerly flow across the UK.

    “The westerly flow will be sourced from a very cold North-east Canada, and it will probably be cold enough for showers to be wintry in nature, particularly over higher ground.” 

    Bookies are hedging their bets on a major change in the weather with Ladbrokes offering 2/1 on the coldest January ever down from 5/2.

  • More wintry weather into January

    The Met Office warns: “Frequent snow showers and gusts to severe gale force are expected, leading to travel disruption, particularly for higher routes.”

    James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather, said: “There is something much more wintery on the way as we head into January.

    “After the very mild start to the month we expect northerly winds to return through the coming days.

    “The month overall looks like dishing up something far wintrier than we have seen over the Christmas and New Year period.” 

  • Where will snow fall this week?

    Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge told The Sun: “Snow will mostly fall across the high ground of Scotland, and places 200m above sea level and above.

    “It will make its way further South late Monday into Tuesday, and so places like Leeds might get a little bit of snow – but it probably won’t last too long, because it’s going to be quite sunny.

    “Other than that, it’s mainly higher ground further north.

    “It’s definitely going to turn colder and by Tuesday could hit the exact average temperatures for this time of year – it’ll just be a big difference compared with the very mild conditions we’ve seen over the last few days.

    “It will also be pretty windy, with strong Northerly winds so it’ll feel colder than the predicted temperatures, which will be around eight or nine degrees.”

  • Weather warnings in place this week

    Weather warnings are currently in place for wind and snow on Wednesday, January 4 and Thursday, January 5 for most of Scotland.

    The warning covers a North Eastern area of Scotland, including Orkney.

    Rain and hill snow could also edge “south across northern UK” further on in the week, the Met Office adds.

  • Snow to return

    Forecasters from the Met Office said the UK can expect “notably colder weather” after the weekend, with chilly winds, ice and SNOW on the cards.

    Met Office forecaster Dan Stroud said: “We are going to be losing the sub-tropical air flow and replacing it with some things from the north.

    “Temperatures will definitely go back to average, with a return of frost and some snow in the forecast across north areas and across the hills.”

  • UK weather outlook for Tuesday and Wednesday

    Cooler on Tuesday, with early rain for England clearing to leave a dry and bright start for most.

    The afternoon will remain dry and sunny, with the odd shower for Northern Ireland and Wales.

    Wintry showers for northern Scotland throughout the day.

    Wednesday will be a dry day with plenty of sunshine.

  • Monday’s weather

    A dry and bright start for many tomorrow but with showers for north-west England, Northern Ireland, Wales and southern Scotland.

    Then, showers will persist for north-west England with sun for the Midlands and parts of Scotland.

    In the late afternoon, a band of rain will push across southern England.

  • Tonight’s weather

    Showers will clear away for most, apart from Northern Ireland and western parts of England and Wales, where it will remain wet for most of the night, as the showers will linger.

    There will be rain over Scotland for much of the night, heavy at times. Dry in other areas.

    A moderate south-westerly wind.

  • Flood alerts still in place

    There are currently 19 flood alerts still in place around the country, but most will enjoy sunniest spells before being battered by 75mph winds.

    Severe gales caused travel chaos as a yellow wind warning was put in place for parts of Scotland as the powerful gusts raged on for hours.

    Met Office forecaster Craig Snell said the average temperature in December and the beginning of January is usually around 7C or 8C, with the warmer weather due to a south-westerly wind making its way across the country.

  • Pictured: Hottest New Year’s Day EVER

    BRAVE Brits plunged into icy waters to wash away their hangovers this morning after celebrating the start of the New Year.

    Hundreds of hardy swimmers leapt into the sea to enjoy their first refreshing dip of 2022 before temperatures climbed to record-breaking heights.

    Crowds poured onto beaches across the UK for the annual tradition.

    Some donned full wetsuits in an attempt to stay warm, while others braved just a bikini and turned red in the freezing waters. 

  • January to see drop in temperatures, says Met Office expert

    Met Office forecaster Craig Snell said the average temperature in December and the beginning of January is usually around 7C or 8C, with the warmer weather due to a south-westerly wind making its way across the country.

    The higher temperatures are usually localised, but “plenty of places” have seen highs of 15C over December.

    However, he added that January could see a drop in temperatures because of an Arctic chill sweeping through from next week.

  • The UK experienced it’s warmest EVER New Year’s Eve

    The Met Office tweeted: “It’s been a very mild day with the warmest NewYearsEve on record for the UK, England & Northern Ireland.

    “Both Merryfield & Nantwich recorded 15.8 °C, with Murlough recording 14.3 °C.

    “Although Wales & Scotland didn’t see their warmest on record it was still a very mild day here.”

  • Met Office: Sunday to get off to a mild start

    The Met Office said: “Sunday will once again start #mild for all of us

    “It’ll also be breezy with some strong #winds developing in places, particularly around the coasts.

    “Bands of heavy showers or longer spells of #rain can be expected but there’ll also be some drier and sunnier periods.”

  • A chilling start to the New Year

    Those living in Manchester, Wales and the Midlands will also see snow.

    And on January 14, northern Scotland will be carpeted in a whopping 11ins by 6am, while 4cm is predicted in Manchester, Edinburgh and Cumbria.

    London and the south-east currently look likely to miss out altogether.

    The winter will make it’s bone-chilling return after one of the dreariest Decembers ever, with less than 27 hours of sunshine across the past 30 days.

    That’s 38 per cent less than the national average for this time of year.

  • Yellow weather warnings for Scotland next week

    The Met Office tweeted: “Yellow weather warning issued.

    “Wind and Snow across northern parts of Scotland
    Tuesday 0000 – Wednesday 0600.

    “Strong #winds and frequent #snow showers will give travel disruption.”

  • Odds SLASHED on January being coldest EVER

    THIS MONTH LOOKS SET to go down as the coldest on record, according to Ladbrokes. 

    Having been a 5/2 shot at the back end of last year, the bookies now make it just 2/1 for January to break records as the coldest EVER. 

    Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “There’s an increasing chance we’ll be wrapping up and strapping in for a record-breaking cold January, as far as the latest odds are concerned.”

  • Weather outlook for Sunday to Tuesday

    Windy with rain for the north, Sunday.

    Elsewhere, sunshine and showers, potentially squally for some parts of England and Wales.

    Turning colder through Monday and Tuesday, with snow for some.

  • Wintry showers for January

    Weather graphics from WX Charts reveal snow could head south from January 10.

    There are also wintry showers currently predicted in West Wales, the North West, and London.

  • What to do if you find yourself aquaplaning

    Aquaplaning – skidding on water – occurs when a wedge of water forms in front of the tyre and lifts it up off the road surface.

    If you feel your car losing grip with the road, gently ease off the accelerator but don’t brake.

    Have a firm grip of the steering wheel and be sure not to make any sudden steering actions.

    The car will eventually regain its grip as water clears from the road.
