Brits Warned ‘Do NOT Travel’ As Beast From East Brings 40cm Snow TODAY

A SEVERE weather warning has been issued for England and Wales as temperatures plummet to -4C tonight and forecasters predict yet MORE snow.

The ‘Mini Beast From the East’ will bid Brits an icy farewell following days of treacherous weather conditions that have caused widespread travel disruption and the closure of hundreds of schools.

Snow is forecast to fall in parts of the Midlands overnight and temperatures in the South West – where snow conditions have been at their worst – are set to nosedive -4C.

Despite warmer temperatures in London an icy wind chill will make the capital feel a freezing -2C.

The chief forecaster for the Met Office predicted that temperatures will fall below freezing tonight.

They said: “The temperature may come back above freezing in some places for a time, but will fall below again where the cloud breaks.

“Ice is likely to form where untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths are left wet after snow melts during the day, or partly melted snow refreezes, and where wintry showers occur overnight.”

Meteorologist Martin Bowles pinpointed snow would fall tonight in the Midlands, specifically in the Derbyshire hills.
