Whirlwind Weather Changes: By Melody Capehorn, St. Catherine’s College.

All eyes were on the rapidly changing weather since the spontaneous hot summer most of us experienced took a cold turn. Since the feverish summer, most of the UK may or may not have wondered if the heat would last through the winter. Prof Paul Davies (Meteorologist) and Chief Meteorologist, in a late Met Office article, forecasts “a mild late autumn and early winter” and rainy and windy prospects through late October and early November, but the Met Office also said there would be “above average temperatures” exist, particularly in the north and west of England.

Gusty winds and rain have already caused unrest around England in the first week of November. Ullapool, Aberdeen, Dumfries, Newcastle, Penrith, Harrogate, Liverpool, Swansea, Belfast and Brighton have already received a yellow warning card for wind and rain, which will see highs of 55-70mph and 20-40mm of rain from the 2nd to 3 November from 3pm to 6pm.

So far, daytime temperatures in and around London, UK are expected to reach 10 degrees Celsius and could drop to overnight lows of 4 degrees Celsius. November can often suffer from cold, windy and rainy weather, November to December not only hits low chill levels it could potentially hit as low as 0 degrees Celsius in places like York, Durham, Newport/Shropshire or Aberdeenshire/Braemar based on Met Office records showed the lowest temperature on record at -27.2 degrees Celsius in 1895 and 1982, as well as in Altnaharra/Highlands in 1995.

The cold weather can be unfavorable for the older generation, babies and children under 5 years old.

Some disadvantages of the colder weather in England can lead to health problems such as hypothermia and heart problems. Weather below normal can cause a heart attack in your body and potentially certain death. Although heat causes more deaths each year across the country, the cold is still just as big a threat. A study published in the Lancet Planetary Health in mid-2022 says that on average over 60,500 deaths were linked to the cold between 2000 and 2019.

A later NHS article says people may be able to enlist financial and hands-on help to heat their home to help with heating bills. Some links provided by the NHS are “Find ways to save energy in your home” and find out about it ‘Benefits & Financial Support’ . You can also visit the ‘So stay well in the winter side’ . This page will tell you how you can take care of the elderly and young during this upcoming cold Christmas.
