Weather forecast tomorrow – Freezing winds to send temperatures SUB-ZERO within hours after Met Office warning

BRITAIN is braced for sub-zero temperatures 'within hours' as an early winter hits.

The Met Office warned of freezing conditions across the UK as temperatures plunge.

BBC Weather meteorologist Ben Rich added that while parts of Scotland will wake up to a freezing cold start, temperatures elsewhere in the UK will hover from 5-8C.

But a brisk breeze will “make it feel rather chilly”, adds Ben.

The grim weather looks set to last through to the end of the month as October's early winter remains unrelenting.

    39 DEAD AS TROPICAL STORM NANGKA TO HIT VIETNAM

    At least 39 people have died in Vietnam and Cambodia as tropical storm Nangka is due to hit later today.

    Scores of people, including rescuers, are also missing, according to reports.

    Heavy rain since early this month has caused deadly floods and landslides in several provinces in central Vietnam and displaced thousands of people in western Cambodia, officials and state media said.

    Nangka, packing wind speeds of up t0 62mph, will trigger heavy rain of up to 400mm in parts of northern and central Vietnam from today through Friday, its weather agency said.

    Flooding has killed at least 28 people in Vietnam, and 11 in Cambodia, where almost 25,000 houses and 84,000ha of crops have been damaged, according to local media.

    HOW LA NINA AFFECTS WINTER WEATHER

    La Niña is one of the three phases of the phenomenon known as the El Nino – Southern Oscillation.

    El Niño – the warm phase, La Niña – the cool phase and lastly the neutral phase.

    In a Met Office blog, Prof Adam Scaife, head of long range prediction said: “La Niña has a profound effect on weather across the globe with us even seeing impacts that extend across the UK.  

    “In late autumn and early winter it historically promotes high pressure in the mid-Atlantic, which stops Atlantic weather systems from delivering mild air to the UK, and therefore can allow cold conditions to intensify.

    “However, in late winter La Niña can drive a shift of the jet stream towards the Poles increasing storminess and heavy rainfall, while bringing milder conditions.”
