Arctic snow and ‘120mm’ rain storms set to batter UK in less than 10 days time

The UK is just days away from being battered by ice, snow and rain storms, new long-term satellite imagery shows.

While most of the country had thought that the bad weather was over, having seen torrential snow storms and record-breaking sub-zero temperatures in recent weeks, it now looks as if another bout of horrific weather is on its way.

According to Met Desk's WX Charts, a freak weather storm is going to batter the country around Saturday, February 18.

It appears to be coming from Greenland, and will drop around three to five millimetres of rain, and around two millimetres of snow across most of the country – this could total around 120 millimetres if it lasts a full 24 hours.

It is not yet clear how long it will last, but Northern Ireland and parts of Scotland will get hit first, before it blankets the rest of the UK.

The Met Office – not related to the Met Desk – has hinted at the impending doomish weather in its long-term forecast.

Starting with overnight on Tuesday, February 7, they state: “Overnight a band of cloud and rain to the north and north-west will sink south-east, easing as it progresses, with a very small chance of some patchy snow across parts of central UK.

“Risk of showers into north-west, possibly wintry, accompanied by strong to gale force winds. “Chilly overnight, with temperatures by day generally around average – thereafter, high pressure is expected to dominate the UK, with largely fine conditions, especially towards southeastern areas.

“More changeable in the north-west with periods of stronger winds and rain possible overnight.

“There is a small and possibly diminishing chance of much colder conditions for a time across the south.

“This period is likely to be characterised by changeable weather, with unsettled and windy conditions, especially in the north-west.”

Forecasts are forever changing, but it looks as if the UK is in for a very unstable time for most of February.
