Arctic Conditions On The Way

Weather forecasters are predicting arctic blasts in early 2022 with temperatures expected to plummet. 

Temperatures could plunge to as low as -5C along with prolonged flurries of snow. 

The best betting sites are offering odds of 4/5 that January could be the coldest on record, with large parts of the country seeing some of the white stuff.

We remember the Beast From The East in  February 2019 when temperatures dropped to an icy -11 in places, with Scotland as usual hardest hit, and we may see something similar this year. 

London which really gets snow is at betting odds of just 1/2 to have snow this month, with other parts of England at similar odds. 

The forecasters are unsure on whether it will just be very cold and dry or very cold and snowy, both scenarios however will mean the heating needs turning up.
