Exact date huge 688-mile snow bomb covering Britain will hit

Almost all of the United Kingdom is set to be covered by a 688-mile snow bomb, with a confirmed date for the freeze.

New weather maps indicate that the UK’s weather will resemble the frigid peaks of the Pyrenees in mid-March, as the country is expected to be blanketed by a shock wave of snow. According to WXCharts, the massive snow bomb is anticipated to cover the nation early next month. A weather system originating from Snowdonia is believed to be responsible for this sudden icy surge.

Members of the public may need to prepare themselves for the snow bomb, which is expected to encompass parts of Scotland as well as most of the UK. The Met Office had previously warned that this late burst of winter could occur due to “blocked” air currents over Iceland and Greenland.

This means the British population may need to brace themselves for March 9 and March 10, as WXCharts predicts the snowy conditions will strike during this period. The unusually cold temperatures could result from the air currents over Iceland freeing up later this week or next.

A spokesperson for WXCharts stated, “Showers should decrease through Saturday, providing most areas with a drier spell of weather. Further persistent rain and locally strong winds are likely to move into some southern areas on Sunday, though those further north are likely to experience drier conditions.”

Additional advice from the Met Office has been shared, as an expert warned of a “greater than normal chance” of cold temperatures in the closing days of winter. Speaking to the Express, they said, “Towards mid-March, there is an increased chance of a greater likelihood of higher pressure, with a ‘blocked’ pattern becoming established over Greenland and Iceland, and lower pressure towards the south and southwest.

“This is likely to bring a trend towards increasingly settled conditions, with the likelihood of drier than normal conditions, especially in the north. This may lead to a slightly greater than normal chance of colder than average temperatures, although this is mitigated as we move further into spring.”
