FREEZING Britain faces an almost total white-out tomorrow with heavy snow falling across the country.
Forecasters warned of up to 10 inches of snow on high ground as temperatures plummet to -15C (5F) during a 6,000-mile wide blast of cold air from Russia.
People are being warned to avoid travelling unless it is essential, amid fears the worst big freeze for two years could cause travel chaos lasting into the weekend.
The Met Office yesterday extended tomorrow’s severe weather warnings for snow across the UK to Saturday and Sunday
Chief forecaster Eddy Carroll said the public should be prepared for “significant disruption” from early tomorrow.
He said: “The snow is expected to be heaviest through Friday morning, slowly weakening and clearing east during the second half of the day.
“Clearly there is the potential for significant disruption to people’s plans.

A "rare" red warning for snow has been issued by the Met Office for parts of Wales on Friday.
It said the warning applies to the Heads of the Valleys and Brecon Beacons areas of south Wales, although snow is expected across much of Wales.
BBC Wales meteorologist Derek Brockway said a red warning is "rare and means take action".
Red warning areas could see up to 30cm of snow and blizzards and people are warned to avoid non-essential journeys.

SolarHam.net - Long Duration C-Class Eruption and CME
A long duration eruption registering as a C2.2 solar flare took place on Wednesday afternoon around region 1650 which is currently approaching the southwest limb. A Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) is now visible in the latest STEREO Ahead COR2 imagery. Because of the location, it should be directed mostly away from Earth. The exact size of the CME should be known within the next several hours once more images are released.

Heavy snow to bring risk of disruption on Friday - Met Office
16 January 2013 - The Met Office is warning of the risk of disruption as heavy snow is forecast across many parts of the UK on Friday.
A band of rain will push into the west into Friday morning, turning increasingly to sleet and snow. Parts of northwest England, Wales and the west midlands are particularly at risk of seeing significant falls of snow and the risk of blizzard conditions in the strong winds.
Met Office Severe Weather Warnings have been issued for the heavy snow. An amber warning is in place for parts of Wales and western England where accumulations of 10 to 15 cm are expected and 20 cm or more over the hills.
Met Office weather warnings help you plan, prepare and protect yourself and others from the impacts of severe weather. An amber warning means you need to be prepared for the weather and take steps to change your plans and protect you, your family and your community from the impacts of the severe weather.
Whilst snow will fall over most areas, the far west, including Northern Ireland, Cornwall and extreme western parts of Wales are expected to see rain.
Eddy Carroll, Met Office Chief Forecaster, said: "The snow is expected to be heaviest through Friday morning, slowly weakening and clearing east during the second half of the day.

BRITAIN is braced for another barrage of storms with up to 10 inches of snow by the weekend.
A band of showers and blizzards is due to sweep in from the Atlantic on Friday threatening a near nationwide whiteout.
Forecasters warned freezing gales, snowstorms and ice will cause more travel chaos as the big freeze takes a second swipe at beleaguered Britain.
Parts of the country have been left under inches of snow this week with more expected in the South and East today and tomorrow.
Saturday is looking like an absolute nightmare with bitter winds sending temperatures comfortably below freezing
The 72-hour freeze has seen temperatures sink lower than Moscow, Finland and Iceland with warnings the mercury could plunge to -15C (5F) in the North and -8C elsewhere.
And the cold weather is likely to last into the middle of next month.
The Met Office said colder-than-usual conditions are likely until the second week of February with snow likely to be “more frequent”.

Yesterday I posted the current 5 day Met Office UK forecast (Monday 14th to Friday 18th January) and there were NO indications for any changes for the end of the week.
As you can see from the above image taken from Today's Met Office 5 day forecast (Tuesday 15th - Saturday 19th January) there would seem to be a significant change coming to the UK for Friday 18th.
This would mean that the Solar influence of the R5+ "Solar Climate Change" would make the current Met Office forecast underestimate Friday's "Amber" warning and therefore any snow fall would be enhanced to a much higher level. We will have to wait and see if The Met Office carry a "Red - Take Action" for this area come the day.
Other events around the world such as a M7+ Earthquake and a "Super Storm" may also develop in this period....more to follow

CHANCE OF FLARES - SpaceWeather.com: NOAA forecasters estimate a 60% chance of M-class solar flares, and a 5% chance of X-flares today.
The probable source would be big sunspot AR1654, which is squarely facing Earth..click SpaceWeather.com link for more

The above is a snapshot of the expected weather in the UK as per forecast from the Met Office (http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/uk_forecast_warnings.html?day=2) starting from Wednesday 16th January, issued on Monday 14th January.
Using their hi-tec website, this 3-5 day Met Office forecast indicates there is nothing to worry about, otherwise it would be coloured, and as you can see it's plain or if you like "un-shaded", indicting for the time of the year they expect "normal January weather", that is in contrast to the 1-2 day forecast I have posted below, it is shaded and includes a level 3 warning due to the below average cold weather and snow etc.
Those of you who have seen the forecast for this period, issued from WeatherAction.com by Piers Corbyn at the end of December (that's right, "end of December") would have noticed that Piers is expecting this period to be one of his highest solar ratings of the year, an R5+, and it takes place from Wednesday 16th and ends on the 18th*. Then allowing for one or two days for the Earth's climate to "process" this event (that's "cause and effect" to you and me) there should be a noticeable climatic change (NOT a "man made" one, but a "Solar Climate Change") in the UK and indeed around the world taking place by no later then Sunday 20th January.
I will include these Met Office daily charts until the last day (Sunday), they should start to change colour, maybe even "Red" as we progress through the week

See below for Met Office 5 Day forecast and see how difficult it is for them to predict beyond this period - Piers Corbyn with his 25 years experience has issued a Public Warning Public Warning: This Weeks Major R5+ Solar Event To Produce Additional Stratospheric Warming and I have included his forecast below issued at the END OF DECEMBER!
