Beast From The East Collection
UK weather: Could another 'Beast from the East' be on the way?
According to Sky News this morning a weather event is taking place high above the North Pole which could lead to another 'Beast from the East' hitting the UK in the coming weeks.
About 6-30 miles (10-50km) up in the stratosphere, there is a Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) occurring where temperatures could increase by up to 50C over a few days. It is so high up that we do not feel the 'warming' ourselves.
However if the weather 'disturbance' heads downwards to the Earth's surface, we could see knock-on effects on the jet stream within weeks, which in turn would affect our weather conditions, making it unusually cold across Europe.
The 'Beast from the East' winter storm in late February 2018 is a stark reminder of what an SSW can bring.
