"Devastating" Winter Predicted for UK

Devastating" Winter Predicted for UK

Meteorological officials in the United Kingdom are warning that the upcoming winter season could arrive early, and see both record snowfall and low temperatures. The conditions are expected to either reach or surpass conditions in the winter of 1962-63, when temperatures plunged to -20C.

The cause for this bleak forecast is due to the recent weakening of the Gulf Stream current in the North Atlantic, of which would normally bring warm water to the UK from further south. This situation is also being exacerbated by the current period of reduced solar output, and may be affected further by the super-El Nio currently being experienced in the Pacific.

"October is likely to see a real chill at times in terms of temperatures due to below-average sea surface temperatures in the Atlantic and a virtually non-existent Gulf Stream," explains Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden. This is of some real significance to us in terms of future weather patterns, and this is also likely to result in a much colder than average November with the first significant snow of the year in parts of the north."

Britain's Meteorological Office, more popularly known as the Met Office, is forecasting a number of weeks of odd weather, then expects temperatures to drop below average going into October.

Emergency services have been warned to expect conditions similar to the record-breaking winter of 1962-63, where temperatures dropped low enough to freeze the River Thames, and could cause major transportation and fuel delivery problems.

University of Texas Institute of Geophysics associate Jud Partin says that Northern Europe could face many years of colder winters, thanks to the current conditions in the Atlantic. A slowdown of the ocean circulation is a double-edged sword. If we see some temperature changes associated with it and somehow are quick to act and alleviate the change, then we have the potential to stop it.

Never take notice of the weather predictions here in the U.K. as they almost always wrong. Wouldn't mind a cold one though.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days
UK Outlook for Monday 21 Sep 2015 to Wednesday 30 Sep 2015:
A dry and bright start in the southeast on Monday, but cloud and outbreaks of rain already in the west will move slowly eastwards through the day. Drier and brighter conditions may follow into northwestern areas later in the day and across the rest of the UK on Tuesday. From mid week onwards much of the UK will see an increasing likelihood of dry and quiet weather with some sunshine but also overnight patches of mist and fog. There will still be spells of wind and rain at times, these most likely in the west and northwest with the east and southeast seeing more in the way of drier weather. Daytime temperatures are likely to be around normal, though with some chilly nights under clear skies.

UK Outlook for Thursday 1 Oct 2015 to Thursday 15 Oct 2015:
There is an emerging signal that the start of October is more likely to see a period of generally dry and settled weather across the UK, and whilst there will still be occasional bouts of wind and rain, these look likely to be most active across the west and northwest, with the longer drier spells in the southeast. By the middle of the month more a more changeable weather pattern is expected to become established, with most places seeing some rain at times. Temperatures are most likely to be close to or a little below average, with the possibility of some chilly nights, with overnight fog and local frost in any longer settled spells.

More from The Met Office Blog: http://blog.metoffice.gov.uk/2015/09...coming-winter/

In particular: "The influence of an El Nio over the UK and western Europe tends to be weaker and less predictable than elsewhere because of how far away we are from the event itself. There is a link in late winter, when we can see a slightly higher risk of a colder than usual end to winter in El Nio years."

The last two winters here in Finland were much too warm. Barely a day below -20C.
I don't complain tho, as it saves alot of money for heating when it's a little warmer and it's perfect when the following summer isn't as warm as it should be to balance out the yearly temperate-average.

Anyways. Weather isn't climate and predictions for a region as small as a country more than a few days in advance is allmost impossible. Vice versa we can't draw any conclusions to the global climate by simply looking at our regional weather.

Anyways. Even if it get's -20C in the UK this winter, it's hardly devastating. We have these temperatures in mild winters. A normal winter sees the temperatures drop to -30C and a cold one to -40C.

Also, I'd rather have a real winter and real seasonal changes than the aweful british weather throughout the whole year

Problem is you guys are used to winters getting that cold so your houses, infrastructure and everything else is gear towards cold winters. In the UK -20C would be an extreme winter, one that very few people would be prepared for.

Yep, and also one that would probably claim many lives (the elderly in particular).

In saying that, I miss the really cold winters and I hope that we at least get to -5 this year. I remember the crazy snowfall we got a few years back and at -10 or -11 it was perhaps a little too cold even for me!
