You’ve probably noticed that things are getting pretty chilly up North right now. And according to weather experts, it’s about to get even colder.
Predicting wintery conditions from next week onwards, it’s expected that Yorkshire could see lows of 6 degrees before Autumn even gets into full swing, with some areas of Scotland predicted to see blankets of snow.
Expert Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, told the Express: “This is going to be a big change from the warmer weather we have seen to something much colder at the start of next week.
“It is definitely going to be weather for coats and jumpers and with the cold there will be a risk of showers, some of which will be wintry over high ground in Scotland. With the wind chill, temperatures could feel below freezing in parts.”
Ex-hurricane Fiona is responsible for the cold chill coming our way, with a push of high pressure over the Atlantic set to bring a gust of icy-feeling temperatures along with it.
It’s expected areas of Yorkshire will face a ‘feels like’ temperature of 4 degrees – much cooler than the highs of 18 and above we’ve been blessed with in recent weeks.
Bookies are also slashing odds on a White Christmas this year, as winter rolls in much sooner than expected.
