Weather forecast UK – Torrential rain & gale force winds to BATTER Britain before 72hr Arctic snow blast THIS weekend

BRITAIN will be hit by an Arctic blast this month – just days after Storm Wanda brings torrential downpours and a risk of flooding to the UK.

Forecasters predict a three day flurry of snow will move in from November 14 and will continue for 72 hours – with as much as 2.5cm of snow expected to fall per day.

But before the white stuff hits, the aftermath of ferocious tropical storm Wanda will see Britain under a washout from next Tuesday.

Met Office forecaster Dan Harris told the Mirror: "Tropical Storm Wanda is not too far from the UK – and may indirectly influence the forecast early next week."

The Met Office has already placed a yellow weather warning for wind across northern and eastern Scotland from 8pm last night until 5pm today.

    Snow threat normal for time of year, says expert

    AccuWeather's senior meteorologist, Tyler Ros, told the Express: "The threat for snow between November 17-22 looks to be around normal for the time of the year, which is any accumulating snow is likely to occur in the higher elevations of northern England and Scotland.

    "We do have to watch a cold snap that appears to move into eastern Europe early next week.

    "If this bleeds westward towards the UK (with the core of the cold remaining in eastern Europe), then the temperatures will be near to slightly below normal during this stretch.

    "This then would fire up some North Sea Sea Effect showers coming in from the east," the expert European forecaster warned.

    "If the hills are cold enough in northern England and in Scotland, these showers are more likely to be wintry."

      Staying healthy this winter

      BRITS have revealed their top secrets for battling winter illnesses during the cold weather – with almost half pledging to take better care of themselves.

      More than half of UK adults believe their immune system has been weakened by months of isolation because of the pandemic.

      Many believe that wiping down door handles, getting more sleep and eating a lot of spicy foods can keep the cold weather sniffles at bay.

      Other methods being plumped by Brits include staying in well-ventilated areas, eating immune-boosting foods like oranges and spinach as well as drinking plenty of water.

      The study also found that 88 per cent of people think that preventing catching a winter illness is important.

      Of the 2,000 adults, 65 per cent said that the average cold will wipe them out for several days – and provoke at least three complaints per day.

      There are plenty of other ways to stay healthy this winter.

      UK long range weather forecast

      Tuesday 16 Nov – Thursday 25 Nov

      Remaining changeable to the north through the start of this period as low-pressure systems slowly move away, bringing largely cloudy skies to many and further rain to the north.

      Elsewhere while rain is possible at times, drier and clearer conditions are still possible in the far southeast, after the early fog clears.

      Temperatures are likely to recover following a rather cold start. Into the second half of the period, the weather is likely to become drier and more settled, although occasional spells of rain remain likely in the north.

      Temperatures are likely to trend down towards the end of the month. This would bring an increasing chance of some wintry conditions, mainly over the higher ground in the north, but with a slight risk to lower levels.
