BBC weather: SNOW DUMP as western Europe hit by GIANT WAVES

The video, which allows a glimpse of a St Petersburg street buried under driving snow, comes with the tagline ‘No Spring in St Petersburg tonight.’ The BBC warned that more snow would push its way through eastern Scandinavia and the Baltics as storm systems churn over western Europe. BBC meteorologist Darren Bett explained: “The weather is settling down across the eastern side of the Mediterranean at long last.

“But head for the west and it’s a different story.

“Everything coming in from the Atlantic, including this area of cloud which is going to bring some rain, some strong southerly winds and some big waves as well.

“Western parts of Europe are seeing some more wet and windy weather.

“Central and eastern areas very much quieter - most places dry with some sunshine and quite mild as well.

“Although there will be some stronger winds and some big waves in the Black Sea to bring some wetter weather to northern parts of Turkey.

“Further west, winds picking up. That rain could be quite heavy as well, stretching its way across the UK into France and hitting the colder air in Scandinavia.

“Snow developing in southern parts of Norway and Sweden, and that snow works its way towards Finland and the Baltic states on Thursday as our band of wetter weather continues to push its way towards the east.”

The UK can expect intense winter weather over the next couple hours as the Met Office issue yellow rain warnings for Wales and southeast England.

In addition, the Met Office’s Aidan McGivern explained the high chance of hill snow in Scotland and Northern England as cold air causes the rain to freeze as it falls.

Mr McGivern added: “There will be some big puddles around in places following heavy rain over the night.

“That rain will clear through the morning but heavy showers will soon replace it.

“With cold air across northern parts of Scotland, later on especially there is the risk of significant hill snow.
