Brace Yourselves, UK Could Be Set For 'Snowiest Winter In 27 Years'

Brace Yourselves, UK Could Be Set For 'Snowiest Winter In 27 Years'

If you're dreaming of a white Christmas then you could be in luck, because a retired police constable turned amateur climatologist reckons we're in for the snowiest winter in 27 years.

Seventy-eight-year-old David King uses thousand-year-old moon charts as well as plants and the behaviour of animals to predict the weather and he thinks we're in for a bit of a shocker.


He told the Evening Standard some parts of the UK, particularly the north, will get snow on Christmas Day, but that it's all really going to kick off in the new year.

He said: "The start of the New Year will be a different ball game. It is going to be very cold, there will be a lot of snow and there will be travel problems. In the south it will get down to -5C."

Adding that it will be the worst since 1991, which I don't remember but was apparently very bloody cold.


David said that he's nearly always spot-on when it comes to predicted the weather, which is more than you can say for that weather app I've got on my phone.

Met Office Issue Snow And Ice Warning In The UK For Tomorrow

He told the Evening Standard he has been predicting the weather for over 40 years and gives his predictions to farmers, growers and others who work in jobs where the weather is a key part.

It's pretty much bad news across the board, because as well as a miserable January with blizzards, frost and piles of snow, the UK should also brace itself for a terrible February and March, according to David.


The UK Could Be At Risk Of Being Hit With Snow

He told the paper: "Sadly the conditions do not improve at all in February and although March is the first month of the meteorological spring, [there will be] some most un-spring like weather, with frost and snow for the first two moons."

However, the Met Office was quick to rain on his parade, telling the Metro his methods were 'not scientific at all'.

We could have all of this to look forward to in just a few weeks. Credit: PA


Saying: "There's every likelihood we will see some snow in January and it will be cold at times - but that's winter for you."

So, to reiterate - winter will be cold in the UK, no matter who you ask.
