Hang on to your thermals: UK faces a February Freeze worse than the Troll from Trondheim as arctic air could drop temperatures below -10C
- The Met Office said high-altitude polar vortex winds could fall significantly
- This will open the door to allowing Arctic air plunge towards Britain
After the Troll from Trondheim in December and this week’s Nightmare from the North, Brits face what could be winter’s worst chill – a polar vortex February Freeze.
The same phenomenon helped to cause 2018’s Beast from the East and the month-long Big Freeze in December 2010.
The Met Office said high-altitude polar vortex winds – which spin around the North Pole and keep cold air trapped in the Arctic – could fall significantly next week.
A knock-on effect…
