UK faces MINI ICE AGE this winter: Polar plunge to freeze Britain with SNOW until February

The UK is forecast to face the most brutal winter in years with heavy snow and sub-zero temperatures across the country.

An icy polar vortex could descend from the Arctic in the coming months and cause temperatures to plummet, forecasters have warned.

A polar vortex is a mass of very cold air which sits above the Earth’s north and south poles.

Freak changes to the jet stream – the air currents that move weather systems around the globe – are allowing the polar vortex to sink over Britain.

As a result, “significant and widespread snow” is expected to fall throughout the country, including parts of London.

Forecasters believe these “harsh” winter conditions will usher in a “new era” that will lead to a “mini ice age” across northern Europe in the coming years.

Last year the Met Office warned a polar vortex could “increase risk of cold snaps” and bring an end to mild winters in the UK.

Although the weather proved less severe, independent forecasters are warning that this could be the harshest winter since 2011.

Britain is currently being battered by 80mph winds and torrential rain caused by Storm Brain.

But in the coming weeks, forecasters expect “a switch to colder conditions” with “two wintry blasts” bringing hell to the UK later this month.

Piers Corbyn, forecaster for WeatherAction, believes that the path of the jet stream is moving southwards, allowing freezing Arctic air to drift down to the UK.

Britain could be lashed with snow as soon as the end of October as freezing conditions grip the nation, he said.

He said: “We are expecting an early taste of winter this year, it is already starting to feel colder and we could see snow by the end of the month.

“This could affect large parts of the UK between now and Christmas, this is all part of an new era which we believe is going to lead to a mini ice age.

“The jet stream is behaving erratically and showing signs of diving southwards over the next few weeks allowing the Polar vortex to sink over Britain.

“Parts of this winter are shaping up to be particularly harsh.

“We can’t expect Britain, yet again, to dodge the cold blasts which over the past few years have only hit America.”
