This week is set to be one coldest periods we have had in the UK for a number of years as the tabloid titled ‘Beast from the East’ sweeps in with freezing temperatures, biting wind and heavy snow for some.

A number of National Severe Weather Warnings have been issued for across the UK over the next few days with heavy snow forecast particularly towards the east.

Some rural communities could become cut off due to snow and there is the potential for power cuts the Met Office has warned with widespread travel disruption likely.

The freezing conditions are likely to last through the week with very cold air from Russia crossing the UK while the easterly winds will result in a significant wind chill  making it feel several degrees colder than thermometers show.

Even without the wind chill some locations will struggle to get above 0 °C by day, with night-time temperatures ranging down to – 8 °C quite widely.

For Flintshire there are currently two YELLOW – ‘be aware’ warnings for snow in place from 12.05am on Tuesday through to 11.55pm and  6pm.
