Brits Warned -9C Arctic Blast Bringing White Easter

Sorry folks, but this snow we’ve been trudging through of recent late isn’t the last of it.


No, the ‘Beast from the North East’ is set to lay waste to the country over the Easter bank holiday amid new warnings of snowy showers en route.

The UK has already struggled to fend off the ‘Beast from the East’ and the ‘Pest from the West’, among many other rotten storms.


A BBC weatherman said:


We’ve been looking at the weather for the Easter period and it looks like it could turn cold again.

Some computer models are suggesting that we are going to have a blast of cold Arctic air so obviously wind’s coming in from the north.

So in this situation we do tend to get snow across northern Britain and there could even be wintry showers further south as well.

He added:

That’s one suggestion. Today some of the computer models were showing that actually some of the cold air could be coming in from Scandinavia and parts of Russia which is almost a Beast from the East, not quite, let’s call it a Beast from the North East.

Now this could still wobble a little bit but one thing we are getting increasingly confident about it that the air is not going to be coming from the south so get ready for a potentially chilly Easter.

Temperatures are expected to drop -9C in certain parts of the UK on Good Friday.


While the Met Office said Easter weekend weather, over 30 March to 2 April, is too far ahead to forecast with confidence, it basically agreed with the warnings.

It said:


The most likely scenario currently is a spell of colder than average weather, with increased likelihood of overnight frosts, and a greater than normal chance of snow, especially in the north.

British Summer Time officially begins on Sunday March 24, though let’s be honest, it won’t resemble anything like summer. But not to worry, it will come eventually and you know what you need in time for it? Aldi’s own inflatable hot tub.

Stay safe.
