UK could be hit by another 'Beast from the East' this winter

UK could be hit by another 'Beast from the East' this winter Britain could be facing a new "Beast from the East" big freeze this winter, scientists have warned. © Getty Freezing weather gripped the UK in late February and March 2018 After studying sea temperatures and air pressures over the north Atlantic Ocean, climate experts have suggested January and February 2020 could be among the coldest for decades. This would be caused by the jet stream - strong winds that move weather systems across from the Atlantic to Britain - deflecting southwards for weeks around Christmas, allowing freezing air to dominate the country, it is predicted.

The UK could be set to experience one of the coldest winters in three decades, scientists have warned.

Meteorologists say an even more extreme version of the“Beast from the East”could see parts of the country hit with blizzard-like conditions throughout much of January and February next year.

Using ground-breaking analysis of sea temperatures and air pressures, scientists have been able to predict one of the longest-range UK weather forecasts ever recorded - according toThe Sunday Times.

Worcester Park fire destroys four-storey block of flats in south-west London

Worcester Park fire destroys four-storey block of flats in south-west London Firefighters battled a huge fire that destroyed a block of flats in London on Monday morning. A total of 20 fire engines and 125 firefighters tackled the blaze at the four-storey residential building in Worcester Park, south-west London. The fire broke out at the building on Sherbrooke Way in the early hours of Monday. No injuries have been reported and the cause of the blaze is not yet known. London Fire Brigade said they were alerted to the blaze at 1.27am and had it under control by 6.31am. “The whole of the four storey building is alight,” it tweeted.

Mark Saunders, professor of climate prediction at University College London (UCL), said: “This would rank the 2020 January-February central England temperature as the coldest winter since 2013.”

“It would also rank January-February 2020 as the seventh coldest winter in the past 30 years.”

“There is a 57% chance the central England temperature will be colder than in 2018, thus making it the coldest January-February since 2013,” he added.

The scientists believe that the jet stream, the high-altitude wind that pushes weather systems across the Atlantic to Britain, will be diverted to hit Britain over the winter.

Boris Johnson to offer MPs 'last chance' on general election with Parliament scheduled for closure today

Boris Johnson to offer MPs 'last chance' on general election with Parliament scheduled for closure today Boris Johnson is set to offer MPs a “last chance” to have an early general election before Parliament is scheduled to be suspended on Monday. However, opposition parties are expected to resist the call for a snap election, as they want the guarantee of avoiding a no-deal Brexit before going to the polls. Parliament is scheduled to be suspended under the prime minister’s orders on Monday, in a move that would suspend all business in the Commons until October 14. Mr Johnson was warned at the weekend that he could be jailed if he doesn’t delay Brexit. It comes after Conservatives warned they will stand a candidate against John Bercow in a bid to oust him as Commons Speaker.

The weather system will bring freezing Arctic air and extreme weather conditions over the UK.

Such a freezing winter would follow a year in which a temperature of 38.7C was recorded at Cambridge University Botanic Garden on July 25, the highest yet on record in the UK.

That exceeded the previous record of 38.5C (101.3F) set in Faversham, Kent, in August 2003.

Several countries in Europe also saw their record temperatures broken in a series of fierce heatwaves.

Earlier this summer, research found the record-breaking July heatwave in central and western Europe would have been up to 3C (5.5F) cooler if the climate was not changing.

There is “extremely little chance” that some of the high temperatures would have been reached if humans had not had an impact on the climate, the World Weather Attribution report adds.

It said heatwave temperatures recorded in France and the Netherlands in the last week of July, which exceeded 40C, would only occur around once every 1,000 years without climate change.

And it said hot spells like the one recorded in the UK and Germany would only occur around every 50 to 100 years if global warming was not taking place.

Experts are predicting the coldest winter for 30 years.
