A spell of cold weather expected to hit Lytham St. Anne’s next weekend as temperatures plummet to -3C during Sunday, 29th November.
After recent mild winters, this coming December is expected to be colder than average according to forecasters at The Weather Company, with the Met Office warning of below-average temperatures and a higher chance of cold spells than recent years.
Leon Brown, head of meteorological operations at the Weather Channel , said: ‘People will get a shock after recent mild winters. It looks like a close call for this winter to be 0.3C below average, which would make it the coldest winter since the early 2010s.
Ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond of weathertrending said: ‘Arctic air will bring lower temperatures from midweek, with snow likely in the North inparticular.’
RAC spokesman Rod Dennis added, ‘Motorists risk being caught out by the coming winter’s onslaught, especially after a mild autumn and last year’s mild winter. Don’t be complacent.’
