Forecasters warning temperatures could drop to -15C by December
Britain faces an abrupt end to a remarkably warm autumn with temperatures plummeting towards Siberian levels, forecasters are warning.
The unusually mild weather is about to give way to a freezing winter, as thermometers dip well below zero within a fortnight.
And the country will be coping with -15C cold by December, according to experts, who have warned that the weather could be as brutal as last year.
Snow could hit the country even earlier than it did then, when the big freeze at the end of November sent Britain into chaos, blocking roads, causing accidents and burying houses.
Jonathan Powell of Positive Weather Solutions said: ‘It will not be as sustained as last year, but these episodes are expected to be severe, with Siberian temperatures.’
