UK weather: Britain will experience -4 degree Celsius freeze and snow

 Thursday, December 30, 2021 


Britain is going to be hit by -4C big freeze and snow just days after warmest New Year’s Eve ‘on record’. This is a major update for UK weather.

Brits will face snow during a bone-chilling -4C big freeze – days after the warmest New Year’s Eve on record. The temperatures are set to be “exceptionally mild” this week before hitting a balmy 15C on Friday – warmer than April, when the mercury hovers at an average of 14C.

But after that, the mercury will plunge as a far more seasonable weather front takes the country in its grip.

And by January 4, even those living as far south as Hampshire could see temperatures as low as 2C.

The forecasters have warned of a “topsy-turvy” week as the mercury rockets up and down.

On December 31, the weather will be as warm on the south coast and in the south-east as it is in Athens, Madrid and Rhodes.

And if predictions are correct, it’ll be hotter in those areas than the record-breaking 14.8C recorded in Colwyn Bay, north Wales, in 2011.

Bookies make it odds on at 4-5 that it’ll be scorching for this time of year, with Coral’s John Hill telling punters: “The betting suggests we are set for the hottest New Year’s Eve on record in the UK.”

The freak spell comes courtesy of a ‘tropical plume’ from North Africa – with one meteorologist joking: “It’s time for people to put on t-shirts and flip-flops”.

But Jim Dale of British Weather Services added that this will last for about five days, after which we expect to pay for it with the cold to return.
