Things are about to get chilly, people

Things have been getting rather chilly in the UK of late. And to be honest, it was kind of welcome after the hottest summer on record for decades. No one had seen your nice jacket from Uniqlo for months, am I right? 

Anyway, it looks like things are about to get even chillier. Ice cold, even. That’s right people – we could see snow in the UK before the end of October, according to new forecasts. On Friday October 28, parts of Wales are expected to see snowfall, and it should stick around too. North Wales is expected to get up to 7cm of snow while parts of central Wales will see up to 2cm. 

Jim Dale, senior meteorologist at the British Weather Service, told the Express: ‘It’s on one of the models covering Wales and northern Scotland. There will be a frosty spell – with a front moving in. It probably will not be very severe but we will have to wait and see. If it arrives as shown then a day or two of lying is possible, but certainly, the cold is going nowhere fast.’

Temperatures are apparently going to drop across the north of England from the week beginning October 25. But the south east is going to stay pretty warm, with temperatures not dropping below 10 degrees celsius. On October 28, parts of Wales are going to drop to about 2C or 3C.

And it’s not likely to stop there. There's a cold winter approaching, and though we’ve been deprived of Christmas snowman-making in the UK for a while, parts of the UK could even be getting a white festive season this yearwhich would be the first time that’s happened since 2010. Huge. 

ICYMI: one of the UK’s best pubs has been saved from closure.

Plus: the chaos at airports is going to spill over into 2023.
