UK weather forecast – Dreary cloud to engulf the WHOLE country today as Britain braces for huge 70mph storm this week

Category : News , UK News , Weather

DREARY cloud will sweep across Britain today as the country braces itself for a 70mph STORM later this week.
Skies will be blanketed with wall-to-wall cloud cover the length and breadth of the country on Wednesday, according to forecasts.

And this could lead to outbreaks of rain especially in the North West and Scotland – and some of these could be wintry.
Thankfully, the blanketing effect of the cloud cover will see temperatures hit a more comfortable high-single-figures for much of the UK on Wednesday.
The latest forecast from Meteogroup UK said: “A bright start for many, although it will be wet in the far south-east and there will be wintry showers in western Scotland.
“Through the day, most will become cloudy and showers will become more extensive in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
“Central parts will be mostly dry and bright. A breezy day.”
For tonight, the forecast adds: “It will be a cloudy start for most with rain in the south, west and north-west.
“There may be a few clear spells initially in the north-east.
“However, through the night, most will become cloudy.
“Outbreaks of rain will spread eastwards through the night, affecting most parts. Moderate southerly winds.”

STORM’S BREWING
The dull, grey day comes ahead of storm that is set to batter Britain with 70mph gales and lashing rain.
A zone of low pressure from the Atlantic is sweeping brisk winds across the country from the west, bringing a week of nasty weather.
Forecasters have warned the rest of this week will be filled with unsettled weather.
A Met Office weather expert said: “Friday the storm will be at its peak as wind speeds reach 70mph in the most exposed parts of the west.
“And the weekend will get off to a dreary start.”
RETURN TO MILDER WINTER
Freezing fog and gales aside, temperatures have been returning to normal for February, with up to 11C expected in the South West, up to 9C in the South East and Midlands and 6C in Scotland.
Simon Partridge, from the Met Office, added: “It is definitely back on track in terms of temperature, where they should be for the time of year, back to a more traditional UK winter for at least a week.
“The rest of the week is just more unsettled weather.”
The warmer temperatures come after a low of -11.7C was recorded at Chillingham Barns in Northumberland in the early hours of Sunday morning, the Met Office said.
But while it was the coldest night of the year so far in England it was not as cold as parts of Scotland, where temperatures fell as low as minus 12.6C at Braemar in the Highlands.
VALENTINE’S DAY FREEZE
The warmer spell ahead won’t last for long, as forecasters warned Britain is set to be hit with a -16C Valentine’s freeze too cold for gritters and yet MORE heavy snow.
February 14 could be the coldest weather for NINE years as icy conditions return.
Forecaster Simon Partridge said: “We’ve got a lot more winter to get through.
“Most forecast models agree temperatures will dip again from around February 14 onwards.”
The wintry conditions are expected to continue into the half-term break from February 18.

The Met Office warned: “There is the possibility that frontal systems may bring wintry hazards, particularly if a more east or northeasterly flow develops.
“Temperatures overall around the average.”
They added: “We spent last week on the cold side of the jet stream. It’s going to be much milder this week as the jet stream moves north, driving wet and windy weather our way”.

State of the Union address – President Donald Trump announces new round of nuclear weapons talks with North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un later this month

Category : News , UK News

DONALD Trump last night announced he will hold new landmark talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un later this month.
In his State of the Union address on Tuesday, the US president said that he will hold a two-day summit in Vietnam on February 27-28.

The talks are part of an effort to persuade Kim to give up his deadly nuclear weapons arsenal.
Speaking to Congress, the President said that continued outreach to Kim and their first meeting last June in Singapore opened a path to peace.
But there is not yet a concrete plan for how denuclearization could be implemented.
President Trump said on Tuesday night: “As part of a bold new diplomacy, we continue our historic push for peace on the Korean Peninsula.”
TRICKY TASK
Denuclearizing North Korea is something that has eluded the US for more than two decades.
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told Congress last week that American intelligence officials do not believe Kim will eliminate his nuclear weapons.
Nor will Kim scrap his country’s capacity to build more – because he believes they are key to the survival of the regime.
Satellite video taken since the June summit has indicated North Korea is continuing to produce nuclear materials at its weapons factories.
MOVES TO DISARM
Last year, North Korea released American detainees and suspended nuclear and long-range missile tests.
It also dismantled a nuclear test site and parts of a rocket launch facility without the presence of outside experts.
The hermit state has repeatedly demanded that the United States reciprocate with measures such as sanctions relief.
But Washington has called for North Korea to take steps such as providing a detailed account of its nuclear and missile facilities that would be inspected and dismantled under a potential deal.

Huge Spanish patrol boat has two-hour stand-off with tiny Royal Navy ship off the coast of disputed territory Gibraltar

Category : News , Royal Navy , UK News

A 300ft Spanish patrol boat was seen off by a 50ft Royal Navy vessel yesterday after it encroached on an exercise off the coast Gibraltar.
The episode had echoes of historic maritime victories against the Spanish by Admiral Lord Nelson at Trafalgar in 1805 and Sir Francis Drake against the Armada in 1588.
The huge Spanish vessel overpowered the tiny Navy ship that was carrying out practice drills
In yesterday’s incident tiny HMS Sabre was involved in manoeuvres with a Royal Navy RHIB, when the Spanish vessel – the Tornado – blatantly sailed into the training drill yesterday morning where it stayed for two hours.
As it passed into territorial waters the Spanish national anthem could be heard over Channel 16, a maritime communications frequency but it was not clear where it had come from.
The captain of HMS Sabre warned the intruder away but it did not impact on the exercise.
A Royal Navy insider confirmed the Spanish national anthem had been heard by radio operators at the Royal Navy base on Gibraltar.
A source said:”HMS Sabre politely requested the Spanish vessel, which is a good bit larger than she is, to leave Gibraltar’s territorial waters with a sovereignty warning. They extend for three miles around Gibraltar and initially it ignored the request which was made several times but she did eventually sail away after a couple of hours.”
Screenshots from shipping websites show how Tornado left the Spanish port of Ceuta yesterday morning before doubling back and heading towards Gibraltar’s Europa Point, clearly entering the exercise area.
The rocky outcrop has been a British territory for more than 200 years and has been hotly disputed with Madrid and tensions have risen in the run up to Brexit.
Last week ‘colony’ in the UK and the EU launched into a new war of words over the Rock today as Gibraltar was branded a draft laws to give visa-free travel to Britons after March 29th.
Downing Street swiftly moved to slap down the jibe which is the latest ploy by Spain to take advantage of Brexit to stake its claim on the Rock.
In yesterday’s exercise – which was widely advertised by the Gibraltar authorities – ships were warned that a ”high speed manoeuvring and blank firing” would take place.

It’s a clear provocation from Spain.

Source in Gibraltar

Passing ships who needed to contact the Royal Navy vessels involved were advised to use Channel 16 – which the Spanish did to broadcast their national anthem.
A source in Gibraltar told The Sun:”Spain is supposed to be a NATO ally but it now does this during an exercise – a clear infringement of Gibraltar territorial waters and it comes just weeks after they let Russian ships use their ports when they were asked not to.
”HMS Sabre issued a sovereignty warning to Tornado after it entered Gibraltar territorial waters and ordered her to leave immediately – there was an exercise going on and they would have known plus channel 16 was used to broadcast their national anthem. It’s a clear provocation from Spain.”
Last night the Royal Navy referred all enquiries to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

In a statement the FCO said:”We can confirm an incursion by the Spanish navy occurred this morning. As with all incursions, the Royal Navy challenged the vessel. When challenged, the Spanish navy vessel subsequently left British Gibraltar Territorial Waters. Incursions are a violation of sovereignty, not a threat to it.
”We have no doubt about our sovereignty over Gibraltar. The UK will never enter into arrangements under which the people of Gibraltar would pass under the sovereignty of another state against their wishes, nor enter into a process of sovereignty negotiations with which Gibraltar is not content.”
The Spanish Government in Madrid and the Spanish Embassy in London was also contacted for comment but there was no immediate reply.

UK weather forecast – Brits brace for coldest night of the winter TONIGHT as -16C snow bomb sparks more travel chaos

Category : News , UK News

THE big freeze is set to worsen today as forecasters warned Brits to brace for the coldest night of the winter amid a brutal snow bomb.
Scotland could see lows of -16C tonight and into Sunday as the cold snap continues, the Met Office said.
A yellow warning for snow and ice is in place across most of the UK on Saturday
Scotland could see heavy snow and lows of -16C on Saturday night
This UK weather graphic shows snowfall at midnight on Saturday, February 2WX
This means it is set to be colder than Thursday which saw -15.4C recorded just before midnight at Braemar in the Scottish Highlands.
Meteorologist Alex Burkill said parts of England could also see sub-zero temperatures reach double digits today.
He told the Press Association: “Over Saturday we’ll see some snow showers around the far north, the far west and the far east of the UK.
“Elsewhere it’s a cold day again and feeling especially cold in the south where it will be breezy, but for most it will be dry and sunny.”
He continued: “Saturday it’s likely to be very similar to Thursday night – we could get down to minus 16C (3.2F) in Scotland, but it’s worth bearing in mind that even across the south we could get into negative double figures.”
‘COLDEST NIGHT OF WINTER’
He said Benson in Oxfordshire was one of the spots predicted to reach minus 10C or below.
“Across the bulk of the UK, tomorrow night’s going to be really cold.”
Although Cornwall and parts of the South East that were heavily hit over Thursday night and Friday are not expected to see any more showers, drivers were warned to beware of ice roads caused by lingering snow.
Sleet and snow could continue across Kent into the early hours of Saturday morning, Mr Burkill said, but should have cleared by the time most people wake up.
A fresh yellow warning for snow and ice covering large areas of the UK is in place for Saturday.

He added that temperatures in the south and central will stay at –2C to -4C and in Northern Ireland, Wales and the North East of England it will be -6C to -7C.
It covers northern Scotland, most of Northern Ireland, the eastern coast of England, the south of England and the west coast of Wales.
On Friday, a coating of up to 14 cm of snow caused havoc in the South West, forcing motorists to abandon their cars and seek shelter as traffic stood still.
DRIVERS STRANDED
Travellers were hit by long delays and schools closed their doors as February began with the coldest night for seven years.
By Friday evening, RAF Odiham in Hampshire had recorded 19cm of snow.
The closures included more than half of Bristol’s schools, more than 300 in Buckinghamshire, more than 150 in Cornwall and scores across Oxfordshire.
There was misery for travellers on the M3 westbound between junctions six and seven near Basingstoke due to snow and stranded vehicles, with the tailbacks stretching to Farnborough.
Highways England also reported severe delays between Tonbridge and Hurst Green on the A21 in Kent in both directions on Friday night – again caused by snow and stranded vehicles.
FLIGHTS CANCELLED
Most flights were cancelled from a snow-covered Bristol Airport on Friday, but normal service is expected on Saturday.
London City Airport closed its runway on Friday night due to heavy snowfall, causing some flights to be diverted and others to be cancelled.
The airport said flights were expected to resume as normal on Saturday morning.
Flight disruption at airports in Cardiff and Bristol left queues of rugby fans facing a race to get to Paris ahead of Friday evening’s France vs Wales Six Nations opener.
Weather charts by WX show parts of the country enduring snow showers on Saturday.
Greg Dewhurst, Met Office meteorologist, told The Sun Online: “There will be a cold, icy start to the weekend on Saturday morning.
“There will be plenty of sunshine around.
SNOW BOMB
“Temperatures will drop to -15C again as the sun will set.”
Wintry showers around coastal parts, the high ground areas across Scotland could see 2cm to 5cm of snow.
Rob Richards, and AccuWeather meteorologist said: “A chilly northerly breeze will be blowing across the UK on Saturday with a few wintry showers across Scotland and along the eastern coast of England.”
By Sunday, there will be a change of weather as a system moves in from the Atlantic slightly bringing milder air.
The Met Office warns anyone who needs to travel on today to keep in touch with local weather.
Dewhurst said: “There will be residue snow in places where they had snow and black ice.

“Our advice keep in touch with local weather and local travel to see if there are any disruptions.

Family slam justice system as driver who killed grandmother while texting ‘cheeky monkey’ emojis walks free after just THREE MONTHS in prison

Category : News , UK News

A DRIVER who killed a gran when texting “cheeky monkey” emojis has been freed early after just three months in jail.
The family of Diana Price, 58, are furious at the “soft treatment” of Gemma Evans, 23.
Gemma only served half of her six-month sentence for causing death by reckless drivingAthena Picture Agency
Her daughter Nina, 40, said: “Three months for killing someone isn’t a deterrent. How is that any justice for our family?
“Nothing about that pathetic sentence will frighten another young driver and make them think twice about being on their mobile phone.”
Evans, of Brecon, Powys, was jailed in October but has been released after serving half that sentence behind bars.
Mum-of-two Nina said: “I’m not a horrible person. I can see it from Gemma’s side.
“She will have trouble now getting insurances and her job prospects and her future has changed but now that she’s out of prison her life can largely go back to normal.
“But my family and our lives are changed forever. We miss mum terribly every day.
“Every time I get in my car I imagine what mum’s last moments must have been like – how she felt when she saw that Mini drift into her lane at speed.

A FAMILY was forced to sit on the floor for their entire flight home as their paid-for seat did not exist, they claim.
The Taylors forked out £1,300 on their family holiday to Menorca, but they say they had to spend the two hour TUI flight back on the “filthy” floor.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ‘not invited’ to Kate Middleton’s 37th birthday ceolebrations as tensions rise between the Duchesses

Category : News , Royal Family , UK News

MEGHAN Markle and Prince were ABSENT from Kate Middleton’s intimate birthday celebrations last week as simmering tensions between the two Duchesses continue.
Kate celebrated her 37th birthday with close pals at her and husband Prince William’s plush Norfolk pile Anmer Hall near Sandringham last Sunday.

And despite the lavish manor house boasting ten bedrooms – providing ample room for guests – Harry and Meghan were not in attendance, according to the Mail On Sunday.
It is not clear if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not invited – or had turned it down.
But among Kate’s close-knit set of pals who could make the meal was old schoolmate Emilia Jardine-Paterson.
She played hockey with Kate when they were together at Marlborough College and is a godmother to Prince George.

Interior designer Emilia knows the Royal couple well – having taken Kate on a girls trip to Ibiza when she and Wills briefly split in 2007.
Her husband David – who also attended the birthday party – was at Eton with Prince William.
And Laura Meade, Princess Charlotte’s godmother and one of Kate’s closest friends, made the party alongside husband James.
Sophie Carter, another Norfolk friend, and her husband Robert also attended the meal – reported to be a Sunday roast.

The cop, who has never been named for security reasons, is her third close aide to leave in a little over two months.
She had replaced Sgt Bill Renshaw, Harry’s long-standing head of security, who retired after more than 30 years in the force.
But she has now quit after being in the job for only about six months, according to The Sunday Times.

UK weather forecast – Britain braces for freezing fog and ice winds today with SNOW on the way

BRITAIN will shiver in subzero temperatures and freezing fog today – with heavy snow on the way.
The UK is set to be blasted with icy weather in the south east and East Anglia this morning, before the “Beast from the East” brings more chills and the white stuff.
Today will be freezing in the south east – and the country is also braced for snow in coming weeks
Northern England and Scotland will be warmer today because cloud cover, but chilly enough to feel it.
The cloud is expected to be weakest over north-east England and south-east Scotland, where we will see icy conditions over night on Thursday.
These areas should expect frost and temperatures down to minus two early on Thursday and Friday morning.
According to the Met Office the temperature will then drop well below average in the last week of January, with snow beginning to fall at the end of next week.

The Beast from the East is predicted to return this year
A couple of centimetres of snow are expected in Scotland, Wales and the midlands on Friday January 18
The easterly wind will move snow to the southeast of England with 2cm expected in East AngliaAlamy Live News
Next Friday we can expect up to 5cm in North Wales and Scotland, and up to 1cm in the midlands.
After a more settled weekend, we are expecting a brutal final week of the month – with snow covering the whole of Northern Ireland and Scotland, and the very north of England on January 21.
But with the easterly wind, the snow will move to the southeast of England with 2cm expected in East Anglia and Greater London on January 22.
There will also be a couple of centimetres in Cornwall and Devon, northwest Wales and northwest Northern Ireland on the Tuesday.
Met Office spokesperson Dean Hall said: “It’s looking like from January 19 until the beginning of February the weather will be fairly unchangeable and unsettled, with rain and strong winds.
“Snow is expected in higher grounds and towards lower ground up north.
“But generally it will be dry and bright.
“The temperature is a on a downward trend towards some very cold weather towards the end of the month, bringing an enhanced chance of snow and frost.
“Cold spells will be interspersed with wetter and milder ones.

“There are indications of a very cold last week of January, starting at January 20-21.”
Tonight’s forecast is showing a North-South split – with frost developing in the South as northern parts stay insulated by the blanket of cloud.
Meteogroup forecasters added: “A cloudy night for most, although there will be clear spells in the south, leading to a frost in places.
“There will be patchy rain for Scotland, Northern Ireland, northern England and Northern Wales, mostly early on.
“There is a risk of mist and fog in the north, especially over hills. Gentle winds.”
But Brits have been warned to enjoy the settled weather while it lasts – ahead of the dreaded return of the “Beast from the East”.
Stormy weather including heavy snow and freezing temperatures are set to hit through March, Met Office weather forecasters.
The same UK weather warnings and patterns from last year that sparked the cold wave have been spotted again.

It said a sudden stratospheric warning had appeared during the Christmas period when there was a sharp increase in temperatures.
When this happens in the Arctic it can lead to a rush of cold air blowing eastwards across Europe in the next couple of weeks, bringing freezing temperatures to the continent.
An icy blast of freezing Siberian winds bringing frosty temperatures and heavy snow to most of the UK early last year is what caused the Beast from the East, a Met Office forecaster said.
However, the Met Office stressed some parts of Britain will see above average temperatures for January over the weekend.
Spokesman Grahame Madge said that another Beast from the East could not be ruled out, but the current forecast suggests there will be stable weather conditions.
He said: “Last year there was a classic set-up with the Beast from the East, there was an event in the Arctic – sudden stratospheric warming – where the stratosphere warms rapidly.

“That triggers, generally, a change in the direction of winds across Europe at surface level. The upshot is that normally when this happens in the Arctic you get easterly winds and that’s what happened last year.
“But although that warming has happened in the Arctic already just prior to Christmas, we are not seeing any change in an easterly pattern.”
Mr Madge added that Britain would see above average temperatures at the weekend, but it is not possible to rule out a cold snap as many parts of Europe are facing “significant” chills and heavy snow.
He added: “There have been some parts of Europe that have experienced quite significant cold, heavier-than-average snow in countries like Austria and in northern and central Europe.
“It is possible we could still see this turn to a more easterly flow but if anything it looks as though we are in stable weather conditions.
