Temperatures plummeted last night as Arctic winds swept the nation amid forecasts freezing conditions will hold out into next spring.

Winter storms will whip up blizzards leaving parts of the country under three feet of snow by Christmas, according to some forecasters.

The warning comes as meteorologists confirm sea temperatures have dropped across the eastern Pacific reaching La Nina thresholds.

La Nina is the positive phase of the El Nino Southern Oscillation – which causes ocean temperatures to rise – and is associated with cold winters in northern Europe.

It will be the first time it has happened since 2010 sparking fears Britain will freeze in the most brutal winter for at least five years.

The US Climate Prediction Centre has issued a rare La Nina advisory warning of below-average sea temperatures into next spring.

For the UK it means this winter will almost certainly be colder than the past four seasons with heavy snow featuring heavily.

A US National Weather Service spokesman said: “During October, weak La Niña conditions emerged as reflected by below-average sea surface temperatures across most of the central and eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean.

“The consensus of forecasters is for the event to continue through approximately February to April 2018.

“La Niña conditions are predicted to continue [with a 65 to 75 per cent chance] at least through the Northern Hemisphere winter.”

Temperatures will continue to plummet in the run up to the festive period with widespread wintry showers expected over the coming weeks.

Wet weather sweeping in from the Atlantic will clash with freezing air over the UK triggering heavy snowfall, experts warn.
