UK weather could turn bitterly cold and the ‘Beast from the East’ could return

Meteorologist Liam Dutton took to Twitter and stated that Britons could be set to see “another burst of Siberian air” sweep across the nation.

He tweeted: “Beast from the east, part two?

“Another burst of Siberian air may push westwards over Europe next weekend. It’s unlikely to be as intense or as prolonged as the last cold spell.

“Nevertheless, it brings the possibility of snow, frost and a late season chill back into the mix…”

Meanwhile, the Met Office has forecast that Monday will see heavy showers that could mark a dismal start to the working week.

Meteorologist Mark Wilson explained: “It’s a rather cloudy and fairly dull start to the new working week across the UK, some showers from the word go for many areas, it could be quite heavy, so some fairly tricky conditions for the morning rush hour.

“Through the day showers just keep on coming really, merging into longer spells of rain especially across western parts of Wales and south-west England.

“By the afternoon there will be some heavy showers developing, especially across south-eastern areas.

“Most areas will be cloudy on Monday but there will still be some dry and brighter weather reserved for north-western parts of Scotland, but for most areas brightness will really very limited indeed.

“Despite the cloud cover temperatures will still do fairly well for the time of the year but under all that cloud it will feel quite cool and a stronger breeze will remain across the south-west of England.”

Heavy showers could break out on Monday evening before drier and clearer weather takes over during the course of the night.

Mr Wilson continued: “It’s a cloudy evening to come on Monday, further shower outbreaks for many areas, again some of this could be quite heavy.

“But through the night gradually we will start to see something a bit drier and clearer pushing in from the west, if this happens there will be an increased risk of mist and fog patches forming across the west in the early hours of the morning.

“It will stay quite cloudy and damp across the east, temperatures will hold up to about five or six degrees there.

“Later on Monday night it could feel quite chilly across the far west and in more rural spots, but for most areas, it will be frost free on Monday night.”

Although a few isolated showers will poke their head into Tuesday, it will be a fairly mild day for the time of year with mostly dry and clear conditions.

However, later on in the working week, a low pressure band will make UK weather more dismal with stronger winds and more rain set to feature.

Mr Wilson went on: “So quite a cloudy and damp start across the far east on Tuesday morning but gradually the wet weather will spread off eastwards into the north sea and that leaves a much more promising day to come on Tuesday.

“There will be a few isolated showers in the far north, but for most of us it will be dry with spells of sunshine and with light winds it should feel fairly pleasant I think with highs of nine or 10 degrees in the south, feeling a lot more spring like than it has done over the last day or so.

“Later on in the day though winds will start to pick up across the far west of the UK.

“So a more promising day to come on Tuesday, but it is all change again as we get through to Wednesday, low pressure will dominate across the UK, many of us will see rain or showers and winds will start to strengthen as well, particularly in the west.

“But despite all of that there will be some further bright and sunny spells and it will still stay fairly mild for the time of the year.”
