Arabia Weather - Britain is currently experiencing the worst cold wave it has witnessed in more than 14 years, as warnings have been issued by the authorities to citizens. This severe wave led to the closure of many schools and the disruption of some main roads throughout the country. Temperatures are expected to continue to fall, and may reach minus 15 degrees Celsius, which are unusual rates for residents who are accustomed to moderate temperatures.
According to the Met Office, “Britain is expected to see its coldest temperatures in 14 years, with temperatures in some areas of Scotland possibly reaching minus 15C.”
Weather reports in Britain indicate that temperatures are expected to drop sharply over the weekend, as the cold wave coming from the Arctic is expected to exceed zero degrees Celsius in most regions. Authorities predicted widespread snowfall across Britain in the coming days.
Estimates indicate that this cold period may witness the lowest temperatures in Britain since January 2010, when some areas recorded temperatures reaching minus 22.3 degrees Celsius. Residents are requested to take necessary precautions to face these extreme weather conditions.

Temperatures are expected to fall to record levels, with snow expected to fall in most areas in the coming days, as a result of the impact of the cold wave coming from the North Pole.
