UK weather: Is there a polar vortex coming that will cause months of heavy snow in UK?

Is there a polar vortex heading towards the UK and obliterating everything in its path with snow and ice?

No, probably not.

Although there are some signs that the British weather may be about to take a slight dip temperature-wise, as a front from Russia rolls across our shores, it is nothing we haven’t been expecting after an unseasonably mild October.

Forecasters at the Met Office have confirmed that we are unlikely to experience a winter wonderland, despite what some media reports might indicate.

In a statement a spokesperson said: “Our latest three-month outlook suggests an increased risk of milder and wetter than average conditions for the period November-December-January based on our seasonal forecasts and those from other leading centres around the world.
