Met Office responds to 'Beast from the East' and snow rumours from forecasters

met office responds to 'beast from the east' and snow rumours from forecasters

Some believe snow may be on the way

The Met Office has responded to some forecasters predicting a ‘Beast from the East’ and up to four inches of snow within days. While temperatures have significantly dropped from the mild early autumn the country had seen, it doesn’t look like we can expect a white winter just yet, Wales Online reports.

In recent days some meteorologists warned that Britain could be facing a repeat of 2010 into 2011 when the country was crippled in the run up to Christmas with heavy snow and ice, reports The Express. It was also reported that indicators of a ‘Beast from the East’ which would see swathes of freezing weather at the start of December.

Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services told the Express: “There is a change in weather patterns now looking likely at the start of December. If this happens, we are in a classic position to get a cold flow in from the east, and with that, snow, ice and very cold winds. This is an indicator of a Beast from the East, and although it has not woken up fully yet, it is safe to say the beast is opening its eyes.”

However, The Met Office has confirmed that this is unlikely and that apart from a light dusting of snow possible on the mountains of Scotland, the rest of the UK is likely to be missed by the white stuff.

The long range forecast says that Wales can expect an “unsettled” start to December, however temperatures will be much colder than we have had in recent months.

The Met Office forecast between Sunday, November 27, and Tuesday, December 6, reads: “Sunday is likely to bring a continuation of unsettled conditions, with blustery, occasionally heavy showers and sunny spells, with any showers most frequent in the northwest. Winds perhaps lighter than Saturday initially, but increasingly windy again under around any showers.

“This theme likely persisting for at least the start of next week, especially in the northwest where it may be wet and windy. In the south and east, however, there is a chance that high pressure may become influential, leading to some drier weather and temperatures perhaps returning closer to normal for the time of the year. The rest of the period remains uncertain, but there is potential for these settled conditions to become more widespread.”

The last Beast from the East struck during 2018, and ground Britain to a shivering standstill as heavy snow blanketed the country.
