UK weather forecast: Britain BRACES for ‘Russian’ weather as BEAST from East approaches

UK weather forecast: Britain BRACES for ‘Russian’ weather as BEAST from East approaches

The cold front from the east is expected to combine with biting winds to produce bitter conditions from the beginning of next week. Some showers are expected on Monday, with more hitting on Tuesday and Wednesday, brought in by the same easterly wind as the cold front. On hilltops some of this rain could potentially turn into light snow.

Met Office meteorologist Steven Keates explained the week will see “a change in our weather as we move through this coming week.

“A few showers on Monday, more showers on Tuesday and Wednesday being driven along by an easterly breeze.

“We’re going to be drawing in colder air from Scandinavia and Western Russia so we will notice a drop in those temperatures and at times it really will feel a good bit colder.”

Before that, Sunday is expected to be milder, though still chilly, with clear skies and sunshine across much of the country.

Temperatures will generally be between 9 and 12 degrees, though could rise to 14 or 15 degrees in a few sheltered locations.

The day will start with some cloud along the eastern coast of Scotland and north east England, but for much of the rest of the country it will be sunny.

However visibility could be limited in a few places, with fog patches expected over parts of northeast England.

Patches of cloud could also develop throughout the day in the south-west of England.

Mr Keates predicted: “Certainly breezy starts to the day and that breeze will have a bit of an edge on it.

“Certainly a sunny day for the likes of Northern Ireland as well as parts of northeast England and eastern Scotland compared to Saturday.

“Elsewhere though barely a cloud in the sky from dawn to dusk but despite the sunshine those temperatures are just a shade lower compared to what we saw on Saturday.”

The meteorologist claims that next week: “In summary is going to be characterised by much colder conditions.”
