Britain will suffer a snowbomb after Christmas when another storm causes blizzards, gales to hit the country.

Expect temperatures to plummet below freezing by the New Year, and to bring back the white stuff in parts of the UK.

On December 27, Storm Corrie will likely drop 1cm snow in the North West, before another five storms batter England.

It happens despite the warmer month’s middle where much of Britain has maintained 10C, despite the freezing November end.

Jim Dale from British Weather Services told the Sun, “We expect one more major storm this year which will set the trends for the coming months.”

He stated that he expected five to six storms during winter, which might be severe enough for them to merit naming.

Although London should be able to evade the current storm’s gale force conditions, he said London may see snow.

Also, the Met Office said that there might be snow in certain places but did not specify where in its long-term forecast.

The forecast for Christmas in Britain was cloudy, with some fog and the possibility of rain and snow overnight.

However, meteorologists warned that the country should be prepared for windier and more unpredictable weather after Christmas as storms begin to hit.

According to the Met Office, “At the beginning of the period it will settle and predominant dry with large quantities of cloud. However cloud could well be thick enough to cause a spot of rain at times.

Cloud amounts tend to decrease over time. This will lead to an increase in risk for overnight fog or frost.

“Toward the middle of this period there are increasing chances of more unstable and windier conditions affecting the UK. Rain and possibly snow may be possible in some areas.

“Temperatures will be generally near or below average, possibly quite cold in the South, feeling chilly wherever any fog persists and mild locally in the North and Northwest.”

Britain was hit by two hurricanes last month. These storms left thousands without electricity for nearly a week, and also caused severe damage to wildlife.

Many dead and ill puffins were found washed up along the Orkney shores. This led to concern about their safety after Storm Arwen.

Flett & Carmichael is a Scottish practice that treats birds. They said that many dead birds had been discovered at Scapa and the other Orkney beaches.

According to the bird handlers, they said that some birds had died from lack of oxygen and needed to be rehydrated.

This confirmed that the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is being informed of the deaths.

Vet Leah Hunter stated that research is underway to determine why puffins have been found dead on the island.

She explained that her practice is in communication with Centre for Ecology and Hydrology. They are collecting data on dead puffins in Orkney and north-east Scotland.

“At this point of the year, the puffins ought to be out at sea in large groups. The fact that they’re being washed up on the ground means that something has sadly gone wrong,” Ms Hunter stated.

“But we will treat them as best that we can, and attempt to return them home if possible.” “The puffins we have seen have been weak and very cold.”

A number of seabirds such as puffins or guillemots were killed off the coasts of Scotland, England, and elsewhere in the UK earlier this year.

According to the RSPB, although it is not known what caused these bird deaths, climate change had an effect on the decline in prey fish and increased extreme weather events.

Ms Hunter stated that some puffins could have been affected by recent extreme weather events, such as Storm Arwen, which battered areas of Scotland’s north-east.

She said that research is underway to determine if there was an unusual explanation for the occurrence. As of now, we don’t know any additional information.

Scottish Government stated that vessels of its Marine Scotland Directorate have taken samples of plankton, water and fish off the coast of Scotland to determine if there are any harmful algal species.

The spokesperson stated that the samples were being analysed at the moment and would be reported back to the public. “Further research continues to investigate whether or not changes in prey quality and abundance are contributing factors.

“We will continue to work with various other organizations to explore a number possible causes of this strange and distressing incident.”

The spread of diseases can be carried by wild birds, which is why members should never touch dead birds or take any from the coast.
