Don't go out without telling people, Met Office warns with first cold weather alert of winter
The alert is in place from 6pm on Wednesday until next Monday morning for the entirety of England

The Met Office has warned the public to tell someone where they are going and when they’ll be back as it put in place the first cold weather warning of the winter.

The forecasters have declared a Level 3 Cold Weather Alert in conjunction with the UK Health Security Agency, with temperatures set to reach -6C overnight in parts of the country.

The official advice for a level three alert reads: "If you must go out, dress warmly and wear non-slip shoes. Tell someone where you are going and when you will get back."

The advice from the Met Office and the HSA includes keeping home temperatures at at least 18C, to stay tuned to the weather forecast, and to “keep active, dress warmly, eat warm food and take warm drinks regularly.”

The public are also advised to check on those they know are at risk, keep their phones charged and with them if they leave the house and to alert the emergency services if they are worried about their own or someone else’s health.

"alert the emergency services if they are worried about their own or someone else’s health"... great advice but... hospitals, ambulances, etc, stretched to breaking, police can't investigate most burglaries (unless you're a soccer superstar?)... Ghostbusters?

Four inches of snow could fall in southern England this weekend
UKHSA extends cold weather alert in all regions of England - as Met Office and urges people not to travel

Nearly four inches of snow could fall in southern England within days - potentially causing travel chaos.

The UK will see at least seven days of arctic weather, in which temperatures could plummet to as low as -10C, wintry downpours and "freezing fog".

It comes as two-thirds of councils in England are struggling to find gritter drivers to help keep Britain's roads safe during the cold snap.

UK weather: Heavy rain warnings for three days as snow gives way to downpours

Forecasters have warned of a “potent mix of wintery hazards” in the final week before Christmas, as the icy blast of Arctic air which has covered the UK in ice and snow gives way to warmer temperatures and downpours of up to 150mm.

Weather alerts have been issued across much of the country, with the majority of England’s southernmost counties and parts of south Wales warned of heavy and persistent rain, which will pose a risk of flooding and travel disruption until at least Tuesday morning.

Further north, a more severe amber alert is in force on Sunday, as the Met Office cautions that a period of “freezing rain” and snow will bring a strong chance of power cuts – potentially affecting mobile phone coverage – as well as rail and flight cancellations and delays, and a danger to life due to slips, falls and road collisions.

This warning covers the majority of northern England, excluding the coasts and northeast, stretching from well below Sheffield in the south to Cumbria and parts of Northumberland, lasting until 8pm.

Those parts of northern England escaping the amber alert, however, face a less extreme warning for snow and ice, which extends all the way up to the north coast of Scotland and raises the possibility of falls, power cuts, travel disruption and rural communities becoming cut off.

UK weather: Manchester Airport closes runways due to heavy snowfall

Manchester Airport was forced to close for hours today after heavy snow blanketed both its runways, leaving thousands of people facing travel disruption.

The airport announced that the heavy snow in Manchester had forced it to close both its runways, with international arrivals diverted.

Dozens of flights were grounded, with disruption likely set to continue through the day even though the runways reopened by 9am.

Temperatures languished below freezing in all parts of the country on Thursday morning as the airport announced the closures, and National Highways said that snow on the nearby M56 motorway was also causing delays of up to 45 minutes – with five miles of heavy congestion.

Weather alerts for snow and ice are currently in force across much of the UK, including in Manchester, with forecasters having warned people to brace for travel disruption.

Warning on severe weather event that caused ‘Beast from the East’
Met Office says there is an 80 per cent chance of a suddent stratospheric warming event taking place but no guarantee of what type of weather it will bring

A weather event that caused the ‘Beast from the East’ storm in 2018 could be about to hit Europe again, forecasters say.

The UK Met Office said a sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) event was “likely” to take place in the next few weeks.

A SSW event is when rapid warming occurs high up in the atmosphere but can change weather on land.

Professor Adam Scaife, head of long-range forecasting at the Met Office, said: “There is now over 80 per cent chance of a major SSW occurring.

“Although the impact will become clearer nearer the time, any effect on UK weather is most likely to occur in late February and March.”

The Met Office added that it was important to that “the occurrence of an SSW does not always equate to a ‘Beast from the East’ type scenario even though this happened in 2018.”

Amber warning for heavy snow and ‘blizzard conditions’

The Met Office has issued an amber warning for heavy snow bringing "blizzard conditions" to a large area of central and northern England on Thursday.

It comes as widespread travel disruption has been brought to large parts of the UK on Wednesday, owing to an arctic blast which has created treacherous conditions on some roads, shut schools and suspended flights.

According to the forecaster, "significant disruption" to transport, power lines and phone network coverage is expected in the area covered by the warning, which stretches from Stoke-on-Trent to Durham.

Wind warnings issued

A large Atlantic low pressure system, named Storm Noa by the French meteorological service, is bringing strong winds, low temperatures and heavy rain or showers to many places.

Yellow wind National Severe Weather Warnings have been issued highlighting the potential for impacts such as travel disruption and the possibility of large waves in coastal areas in south Wales and southern England. There could be some snow over higher ground in the north at times.

Météo-France has named this low pressure system Storm Noa as it will bring strong winds across northern France.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Matthew Lehnert, said: “Most places will see showers or longer spells of rain today but the impacts are most likely to come from strong winds. Gusts of 50-60 mph are possible quite widely in the southwest, with up to 75 mph in exposed coastal areas.”

UK weather: Britain set for sudden drop in temperatures after hot spell
Parts of UK to become cloudier, cooler, and unsettled after 21C temperatures this week

The UK is set to experience a sudden drop in temperatures with cold weather and even snow predicted in the coming days after a hot spell this week, according to new forecasts by the Met Office.

Despite recent warm weather, low pressure is expected to take over early next week, bringing an icy chill, weather maps show.

Overnight on Tuesday, temperatures remained on the colder side after Britain recorded its warmest day of the year this week, with temperatures touching 21C in certain parts.

The mercury is set to start dropping from Wednesday with temperatures expected to be “cooler than recent days”, the Met Office said.

UK weather: Temperatures set to rise ahead of heatwave prediction

The shift in weather comes amid reports of “African plumes” that are expected to bring multiple heatwaves to the UK this summer, with temperatures in excess of 35C.

In its long-range forecast, the Met Office predicted “above normal temperatures” for the country for the end of the month and June. The certainty for this, however, remains low, meteorologists said.

Britain set for mini-heatwave with temperatures up to 25C

Britain is set for a mini-heatwave with above-average temperatures expected to stay until June.

Forecasters say the UK will see the hottest day of the year on Thursday as temperatures soar to 25C (77F) in southwest England.

Meanwhile, medium-range forecasts show that the warmer-than-average temperatures will continue until the end of May and into the first week of next month.

...other parts of the UK will see temperatures in the low 20s as far north as southern Scotland. But the east coast will feel cooler at around 16-18C as winds from the North Sea moderate temperatures.

The forecaster said nights will continue to be chilly throughout May, bringing down the month's overall average temperature, with the potential for frost in rural areas, particularly on Tuesday night.
