The Met Office has issued a new warning for snow and ice for most of the British isles, with temperature established to dip as minimal as -5C in London on Saturday – amid problems Britain will have to brace alone for a second Arctic blast from Siberia, dubbed ‘Beast from the East II’.

It can acquire two weeks for the results of a SSW to be felt. This was the situation in February 2018 with the infamous Beast from the East, which observed significantly of the British isles gripped by journey chaos and faculty closures amid weighty snow. 

Dr Richard Hall, an specialist in SSWs from the University of Bristol, reported it ‘loads the dice’ or ‘tips the odds’ in favour of one more blast of weighty snow and sub-zero temperatures from Siberia.

What is Sudden Stratospheric Warming? 

Critical conditions that hit Britain in February 2018 were being described by the Met Office as a ‘cocktail of temperature events’.

The cold spell dubbed the ‘the Beast from the East’ – which also coincided with the arrival of Storm Emma – was brought about by a leap in temperatures higher above the Arctic, acknowledged by meteorologists as ‘sudden stratospheric warming’.

The phenomenon, which in Britain ordinarily prospects to cold periods, starts 30km (18 miles) into the ambiance in the higher altitude jet stream, which ordinarily flows from west to east, bringing relatively heat and moist air from the Atlantic into the British isles.

A disturbance hits the jet stream, pushing its waves down in direction of the Arctic and reversing the stream from east to west. As the air is compressed above this region, it starts to heat.

This prospects to higher stress above the North Atlantic, blocking the usual move of mild air that flows into Britain from the west.

As a substitute, colder air from the east is sucked above the British Isles, ensuing in colder temperatures.

‘We then have showers coming in, these showers could even slide as snow – especially in northern Scotland.’

The snow is widespread throughout Scotland though locations such as the north east have not noticed as significantly.

He added: ‘The major location of impact is above Siberia where by you get rigorous cold and that then extends westwards toward Europe. 

‘We are suitable on the edge of this and so slight versions can have an effect on if it reaches us.’
