Mini ‘Beast from the East’ brings -8C temperatures and even SNOW to the UK when UK Daylight Saving Time begins

Snow was spotted in Surrey and Scotland today when British Summer Time started, with temperatures dropping as low as -8C, while a 1,000-mile-wide mini ‘Beast from the East’ hits the UK until next week.

The unpleasant weather, which follows a week of glorious sunshine across the country, is sure to dampen the mood as dozens of Brits stay home during the coronavirus shutdown.

Yesterday people were seen walking, running and cycling in Britain’s parks and on the country’s beaches, from London – the engine of the British pandemic – to Brighton, Dorset and Bournemouth.

But the Met Office today warns of snow flurries in the South East of England, such as in Ashford, Kent, while an inch of snow has settled in parts of Northern England and Scotland.

Wind chills will cause 10C days to drop as 3C for most people, while nighttime temperatures drop to -6C in the south and -8C in Scotland – colder than -3C Moscow.

The RAC has warned empty battery drivers, with spokesman Simon Williams saying, “Key workers and motorists on essential trips should be careful not to start cars after cold nights.”

A 1,000-mile-wide plume of cold eastern air from Northern Europe blows across the North Sea to Britain. The chill decreases on Wednesday, but returns for the weekend on Friday, with “disruptive” snow threatening the north.

The Met Office warned in early April of more snow, even in the south.

Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said, “British Summer Time kicks in with easterly winds bringing a late-season mini beast from the east. It is ironic after mild westerly winds into winter.

Snow flurries were possible on Sunday in the east to Essex and Kent, and inland.

‘-6C nights are on the map in the south of England, with -8C in Scotland, with a feeling of cold feeling bitter especially after the heat of the past week.

‘In the south, the eastern current decreases on Wednesday, but from Friday the cold air returns from the north.

“Next weekend has the potential for disruptive snow in the north of England and Scotland on higher ground, so key workers using high-level roads should follow the forecast.

“In any case, cold weather will encourage people to stay at home and not mix in parks.”

With Petecaster Marco Petagna said, “The UK will see chilly winds from the north or east.”

A Met Office predictor said, “Sunday risked snow on the East Coast and inland, with 1 or 2 cm of snow that could accumulate above 200 meters locally from Northern England.

“It feels cold in the wind. In April, the chances of cold northerly winds increase, making possible winter showers even lower in the south. ‘

Ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond of weathertrending said: ‘British Summer Time feels like winter again. The clocks are improving but the cold is returning.

Lighter evenings are a sign that summer is coming, but there will be a winter cold and widespread frost.

“And another shot of chilly northern air follows.”
