Bonfire Night is scheduled for SNOWFALL as more thunderstorms and 70 mph winds whip over the UK today


FED-UP Brits are facing more weather misery today as thunderstorms and 70 mph winds whip the country – before snow falls on Bonfire Night.

Temperatures are set to plummet later this week amid a four-day Arctic explosion, with snowstorms expected in parts of northern England and Scotland by the weekend.

Forecasters at WX Charts predict even 20 centimeters of snow in northern parts of Scotland by the middle of the month when the mercury drops below freezing point.

The rest of the UK will be shivering in single-digit temperatures that will find it difficult to rise above 11 ° C in most places.

Jim Dale, Meteorologist for the UK Meteorological Service, said: “This is Britain moving from autumn to winter.

“After the restless Atlantic influence on the weekend and until the beginning of the week, it will be colder.

“The jet stream will move south in the coming days, which will enable a northerly, polar airflow.

“Over the hills in the north, showers can turn wintry and there is a risk of frost.

‘INCH SNOW’ TO COME

“Although it’s getting colder for Bonfire Night, it’s getting lighter and drier.

“This is good news for people who go to bonfire parties.”

James Madden of Exacta Weather said, “We might start to see some significant snow events over higher ground.

“If you watch Bonfire Night, there is a risk of widespread frosts if we get a taste of some early winter conditions.

“We are about to change the weather, which will pave the way for a cold and wintry end of autumn.”

Before that, however, there will be much more rain after a week-long wash that evacuated hundreds of people when swollen rivers overflowed their banks.

TEMPERATURES

Met Office meteorologist Aiden McGivern said there will be “annoying wind and rain” early on before a “cooling trend” occurs across the country.

The service today warned of some “heavy showers” with possible thunderstorms.

Tomorrow it will be drier and colder – before the cold really sets in on Wednesday.

“We will see more and more sunshine, but we will find that it gets colder with north winds – it gets cold during the day and with night frosts at night,” said Stav Danaos of the BBC.

“Colder air will be drawn out of the Arctic on Wednesday.”

He said temperatures won’t rise much above 8 ° C and it will feel especially chilly in the wind.

And bookmakers have already slashed the odds that November will be the wettest ever.

Ladbrokes has reduced the probability of record rainfall from 2/1 to just 6/4.

Ladbrokes’s Alex Apati said: “It’s going to be similar on the weather front for the coming weeks, with a record-breaking wet November potentially on the way.”
