Storm Corrie will be no different named as the “snow bomb” could move in from December 27. As a south-western front of rain and wind moves across the United Kingdom, there is “potential for some snowfall’.

If the pressure contained within the storm deepens by 24millibars in 24 hours, it will earn the title of “weather bomb”.

The resulting snowfall could then wreak havoc for shivering Brits up and down the country.

It comes as British Weather Services meteorologist Jim Dale warned of another major storm – dubbed Storm Corrie – before the New Year.

This is due to the La Nina effect, an unsettled weather front caused when warm North Sea temperatures mix with cooler water from the Pacific Ocean. And it appears Storm Corrie will be no different – as a “snow bomb” could move in from December 27.

By December 28 – after continuous overnight blizzards – 2cm of snow per hour will come down across swathes of the North West, the south of Scotland, Southampton and Cardiff. It comes after Brits were treated to an unseasonable spell of warm weather.

The UK was hotter than Madrid yesterday, as a 13 degree C winter warmer swept in after torrential rain and gale force winds over the weekend. The mercury reached a pleasant 10C in Leeds and 12C in Cardiff – rising to 13C in London.

This meant the capital was even hotter than the Spanish city of Madrid, where it reached highs of just 12C yesterday afternoon.
