When will Beast from the East '2.0' hit the UK?

Postado Março 13, 2018

Londoners are being warned that the Beast from the East might not have fully disappeared as Siberian winds and snow showers are forecast this weekend.

Liam Dutton tweeted the change in conditions could mark a return of "Beast from the East, part two" as there is a possibility of snowfall hitting parts of the country.

High pressure will build over Scandinavia which will drew in the easterly glow which will become established from Friday through until Monday.

However, Met Office experts have acknowledged that it will be a "poor sequel" to the original "Beast from the East".

During the week temperatures will be mild, reaching highs of around 12C tomorrow (Wednesday).

The colder temperatures will reach the region on Saturday.

Expected wind speeds in the UK on Wednesday

We should expect snow over the weekend but while it won't be almost as destructive as the last time people should be cautious nonetheless. It will be around 3C to 5C during the day.

"Where this air originates, from Poland and Eastern Europe, is still cold so temperatures will fall significantly here in Britain, it looks like being a drier feature than the last time".

The mercury could drop as low as -4C overnight this weekend, with the wind chill making it feel close to -7C.

Martin Bowles, meteorologist for the Met Office, said: "We are expecting some slightly colder temperatures coming through the weekend". However there is a bit of uncertainty about how quickly that cold wind will come in from the east.

Dan Holley, a forecaster at Weatherquest, said on Twitter that a "marked windchill is likely and some snow is possible", but that it was too early to say where, when or how much.
