- Global Warming: Britain Braces for ‘Coldest Winter in 30 Years’

Researchers from University College London are forecasting an average temperature in the UK of just 3.9ºC (39ºF) for January to February in what is expected to be “the coldest weather in 30 years.”
Yahoo News reported Saturday that temperatures in Great Britain could reach as low as -14C with “snow event after snow event” expected to hit various parts of the territory.
Forecasters expect the lasting cold spell to begin sometime this month and to continue at least through March. “October is now looking like it will turn out to be colder than average with more of a chance of something wintery setting in through the second half of the month,” according to Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden.
“There is a strong chance of widespread frosts and the chance of snowfall which will set the scene for November,” Madden said. ““This will pave the way for what is shaping up to be a colder than average winter with some extreme cold weather events.”
“Snow events have been few and far between in recent years, but this winter is looking favourable to bring snow event after snow event as weather systems from the Atlantic clash with cold stagnated air over the UK,” he said.
