'The Beast from the East' Vol.2: Heavy Snowfall Hits UK Again

Heavy Snowfall Hits UK Again
According to forecasters, another snowstorm has brought 70 mph icy blasts and up to 25 cm (10 inches) of snowfall, painting Britain white, as temperatures dropped to 5 degrees below zero Celsius.

The Met Office keeps issuing yellow weather and amber warnings, predicting travel disruptions and power cuts.

“It will be bitterly cold with some snow for many places over the weekend. There are some very strong winds, meaning it could feel as low as —7C or —8C for some people,” said Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkhill.

London’s Heathrow Airport, in turn, has cancelled some 70 flights ahead of the heavy snowfall.

“Poor weather conditions are forecast across parts of the UK across the weekend, so we have merged a small number of flights traveling to or from Heathrow Airport," a spokesman for British Airways said.
