Fears of NEW Beast From the East bringing winter chaos to Britain

Heavy snow and polar temperature could hit the UK later this month as conditions are coming into place for a second 'Beast from the East'.

Meteorologists have confirmed that a sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) event is developing high above the Arctic, the same phenomenon which caused the country to grind to a halt two years ago.

Parts of the stratosphere have already warmed by around 50C - which cannot be felt on earth's surface - and this has the power to interrupt the jet stream which controls much of Britain's weather.

Experts say it is possible that the stream could be reversed, and that the country might be hit the freezing conditions currently seen in the north of Scandinavia.

‘The stratosphere above the North Pole has warmed, it started its process on the 4th of January and has been rapidly warming over the last few days,' said Met Office forecaster Craig Snell.

It could result in the whole country being covered by heavy snow in blizzards, and daytime temperatures as low as -5C by the end of January and into February. 

Experts are warning that Britain could be hit with another Beast from the East after the same weather event which caused the extreme period of snow blizzards and freezing temperatures in 2018 (pictured) happen again this week

There are fears such an event would wreak havoc on the NHS and the ability to deliver food and vaccines to vulnerable people isolating at home.

Simon Lee, an atmospheric science and weather forecasting researcher at the University of Reading, told The Mirror: 'A weakening of the jet stream often occurs after an SSW, meaning the UK is now more prone to outbreaks of colder weather from the north and east than it was before.

'A weakened polar vortex can last for up to two months, so there is an increased likelihood of colder, drier weather occurring in Europe sometime in
