Coldest May for 100 Years: Spring will Retreat as Winter Roars Back by Nathan Rao, Daily Express
BRITAIN is facing the coldest May for a century with winter poised to return, bringing snow and bitter winds.
Parts of the UK are braced for the thermometer to plunge as the cool spring turns even chillier. Worst hit will be the East – although summer will be on hold across the entire country.
The freeze follows a miserable April which has seen below-average temperatures, snow and torrential rain.
Independent forecaster WeatherAction warned that next month will be the “coldest or near coldest for 100 years” in the East. Forecaster Piers Corbyn said May will bring a “run of bitter northerly winds” with snow at times.
He said: “We are making this headline public because of its importance. The very cold expectations apply to eastern parts and near Europe rather than Ireland and West Britain.” He said a system of cold air will get stuck over eastern Britain for most of the month.
