Could Winter 2019 Be The Coldest Yet?

It could be time to turn on your modern electric fireplace soon as the mercury is set to plummet throughout October and November, and many of us can expect to experience hail, thunder storms and blizzards.

The temperature has certainly dropped in the last couple of weeks, with most Brits swapping their shades and sunhats for raincoats and knitted jumpers recently. However, this is just a taste of things to come, as weather experts predict this year could be the coldest winter for decades.


It could be time to turn on your modern electric fireplace soon as the mercury is set to plummet throughout October and November, and many of us can expect to experience hail, thunder storms and blizzards.

James Madden of Exacta Weather told the Express the first snow could hit as early as the beginning of October, which he states is very early in the season.

“This will pave the way for further similar snowy scenarios during the rest of October, there will also be some hefty hail showers in the mix and these could come to lower levels of the country at times,” he added.

As a result, temperatures for the month will be below average, with frosts expected across the country.

Conditions will not improve into November and December, when extreme cold weather could continue.
Mr Madden commented: “Snow events have been few and far between in recent years and in terms of snowy winters, however, this winter is favourable for what is likely to be snow event after snow event.”
While it is too early to predict whether it will be a white Christmas, a cold blast from the Atlantic means it could be more likely than in recent years.

Weather experts even predict this winter could match 2009-10’s, which the Met Office revealed was the coldest in 31 years.
It reported the average temperature between December and February that year was just 1.51C, while snowfall of up to two feet deep was a frequent occurrence around the country.
