‘Beast from East’ to make bone-chilling return
Based on studies of current sea temperatures and a weather system over the north Atlantic, climate experts at University College London say a freezing vortex of Arctic air is expected to hit the country in the next four months, with temperatures plunging to their lowest in decades.
They predict it could be colder than the Beast from the East, which saw temperatures in the Cairngorms in Scotland drop to -14°C.
The team, led by professor Mark Saunders, told The Sunday Times: This would rank “as the seventh coldest winter in the past 30 years.”
