UK weather forecast: Snow falls 'for days' amid 80mph storms in Arctic frost

A forecast suggests up to 20 inches of snow could fall on higher ground, with the Met Office warning of winter weather in much of the UK this weekend

Britons face several days of snow, sleet, rain and severe storms at 80 mph as an Arctic frost grips the country.

Up to 20 inches (50 cm) of snow could fall over the Cairngorms in Scotland in the coming days, with “longer periods” of snowfall also possible at higher elevations in northern England and Wales.

Snow will be possible “almost anywhere” between Friday and Sunday, the Met Office said.

Maps predict temperatures around zero for Thursday morning with blue for areas across the country, and the cold weather will continue well into December.

Radar showed snow falling over higher ground in Scotland overnight, and colder weather was expected to extend to lower levels as icy air blows in from the Arctic.

More snow is forecast on Friday in Scotland, northern England and parts of Wales, and is likely to continue into the weekend, where weather warnings are also in place for high winds up to 80 mph.

It will come after “several shots” of Arctic air enter the UK later this week as the jet stream sinks south, bringing much colder and wetter weather.

Snow is expected to remain for days and fall heavily. The Weather Outlook expects up to 20 inches (50 cm) of snow in Scotland’s Cairngorms this weekend.

Parts of the North East are forecast to accumulate up to 8 cm (3 in) over the same period and the maps indicate light snow showers could fall in the Midlands and South East.

Yellow weather warnings will be in effect in parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland on Friday, and in the rest of the UK on Saturday.

The Met Office said “very windy weather” could lead to transportation delays, damage to buildings, bridge and road closures and power outages.

Grahame Madge, a Met Office spokesperson, said: “We have an uncertain period of weather in the coming days, with wind warnings for Scotland and Northern Ireland to start with on Friday.

“This will extend to all of the UK except London and the South East on Saturday with strong winds expected.

“There is an increasing signal of snow at higher elevations, indications suggest that areas above 200m in Scotland have the greatest chance from Friday.

“There may be temporary showers in other areas of Northern England and Wales, in areas such as the Pennines and Snowdonia, although these probably won’t be heavy enough to settle.”






The Met Office issued weather warnings for high winds this weekend

After a mostly mild November, temperatures in many parts of the UK have already started to drop and the rest of the week is set to get even colder.

Madge added: “Friday and Saturday, while clear and clear, will be quite cold with a chance of longer snowfalls at higher levels, but we don’t expect anything at lower levels.

“While it’s not exceptionally cold temperatures during the day, many places can drop to around freezing at night.

“The coldest daytime temperatures for London and the South East will be around 6C on Saturday, although this is not particularly rare for the time of year.”

With Office weather forecast:

Thursday

Dry and bright for many.

Winter showers in the far north and some showers in some coastal areas of the North Sea and the Irish Sea.

Airy and cold to the touch.

Friday to Sunday

It will clear up on Friday, heavy storms and winter showers on Saturday.

Almost everywhere snow possible, but only on hills.

Cold nights.

Good start on Sunday, later wet in the west.

Money Heist professor says 'Namaste India' while thanking fans.  View |  Trending

Netflix India took to YouTube to share the video featuring Professor and other characters from the Money Heist series.

After a long and arduous journey that won the hearts of people around the world, the Netflix series Money Heist finally came to an end on Friday. The show’s conclusion also prompted many to share various posts on various social media platforms. Among them, there is also a video shared by Netflix India on their official YouTube channel. The clip shows some of the actors from the series thanking their fans in India. However, what has won the hearts of the people is Alvaro Morte, who plays the role of professor and says, ‘Namaste India.’

“Gracias India! The cast of Money Heist are blown away and are here to thank their Indian fans,” reads the caption posted along with the video.

Have a look at the video:

The video was shared a day ago. Since the video was posted, it has racked up over 1.5 million views and the number is only increasing. While responding to their own post, Netflix India further added: “When Professor said “Namaste”, our hearts skipped a beat.”

“Professor steals our hearts with his intelligence and Berlin with his elegance. I love you both. This series will remain in our hearts forever,” wrote one YouTube user. “Also Professor Namaste from INDIA,” commented another. “The professor’s Namaste actually sounds like us Indians would say it. I can’t believe the series has come to an end,” said a third.

If you missed a Fitbit during the Black Friday sale, don’t worry – there are now some great deals to help you stay in shape during the holiday season. The Charge 5 has returned to a record-low price from $130 at Amazon, or $50 under the usual sticker. That could make it a solid bargain if you’re looking for a high-quality fitness-focused activity tracker from a well-known name. The Inspire 2 is also out up to $60 (normally $100) if you’re happy with the essentials.

Buy Charge 5 from Amazon – $130
Buy Inspire 2 at Amazon – $60

The Charge 5 ticks many of the boxes if you’re determined to stay in shape. The extensive fitness and health tracking features help, especially if you get the advanced data from Fitbit Premium. For example, you can optimize your training performance and gain insight into your sleep quality. In addition to your heart rate and blood oxygen level, you can also track your stress and you get extras such as GPS, Fitbit Pay and a multi-day battery life.

There are limitations. Fitbit doesn’t share activity data with Apple Health or Google Fit, and you can’t control music from the tracker’s screen. There’s also the issue of competition: you can find some adequate alternatives from companies like Amazfit, Xiaomi and Amazon themselves that cost less (at least up front) if you can do it without some frills. Fitbit’s experience in the field matters, though, and the retail price makes the Charge 5 significantly more tempting.
