Beast From The East set to return this weekend

Beast From The East set to return this weekend”

Snowy scenes in Felixstowe during the last spell of cold weather.

But the spell of good weather will break on Wednesday as heavy rain sweeps in from the west.

As we go into the weekend a large area of high pressure over Scandinvaia starts to take control, it rings out those weather fronts and it slowly pushes its influence over the UK.

A mid-week washout with heavy downpours totalling up to 50mm will give way to sub-zero conditions on Saturday as the cold moves in from Siberia and Scandinavia.

Some Oldhamers might want to brace themselves for the "Beast from the East part two".

Hopes of the arrival of spring - with temperatures reaching up to 14C this week - will be dashed at the weekend as the mercury is set to "drop significantly", forecasters warned.

BBC Weather Matt Taylor temperatures
BBCBBC Weather Matt excitedly announced warmer temperatures for tomorrow but it isn't to last long

Overnight it will become frosty and temperatures could plunge to as low as -3C, but in the chilly winds it will feel more like -4C.

In the day, temperatures will hover in single figures into the start of next week, which is well below the 11C average for the time of year.

The cold weather and snowfall are not expected to be as severe as conditions earlier this month when the "Beast from the East" brought widespread chaos with blizzard conditions leaving many roads impassable, closing schools and bringing public transport grinding to a halt.

She said by Friday the rain would be confined to the east and there would be dryer conditions elsewhere.

We should expect snow over the weekend but while it won't be almost as destructive as the last time people should be cautious nonetheless.
