Western Europe is braced for snow in the coming weeks
Northern and Western Europe is preparing for the onset of an early winter this year. Weather forecasters are warning that snow could hit parts of the UK in late October or early November, much earlier than usual, while temperatures will be consistently below average over the coming three months. They see evidence of huge low-pressure systems bringing Arctic air southwards. The warnings bring back memories of last winter, when freezing temperatures, ice and snow resulted in air traffic disruptions at airports such as London Heathrow and Frankfurt.
“I expect December, January and February to experience below-average temperatures, with the heaviest snowfall occurring within a timeframe of November to January across many parts of the UK,” James Madden of Exacta Weather said.
