    Shoppers panic-buy bread and thousands of commuters prepare to leave work early to be home by 6pm before the 'Beast from the East' bites with eight inches of snow and -12C ice

     

    8 inches of snow over eastern England by Wednesday as health officials warn elderly to ensure they stay warmCommuters in the South East travelling home from London have been told to complete their journeys by 6pmMet Office severe weather warnings for heavy snow in place across Britain today and for the rest of the weekTemperatures fell to -9.2C (15F) yesterday as wind chill factor could make it feel as cold as -15C (5F) todayAre you experiencing travel chaos or food shortages in Britain today? Please email: news@mailonline.co.uk

    Hundreds of thousands of commuters are preparing to leave work early to be home by 6pm as the 'Beast from the East' begins to bite Britain with eight inches of snow and temperatures dropping as low as -12C (10F).

    Supermarket shoppers are reporting huge queues amid claims of panic buying over fears of widespread travel chaos in the UK. Bitterly cold temperatures are expected to cause power cuts and hit mobile phone networks.

    Up to eight inches of snow will hit eastern England by Wednesday, forecasters say, as the 'Beast from the East' sweeps in from Russia and health officials warn the elderly and children to ensure they stay warm.

    Hundreds of thousands commuters in the South East travelling home from London to Kent and Sussex have been told to complete their journeys by 6pm tonight, before the worst of the snow hits and potentially disrupts trains. 

    South Eastern has chosen 6pm as the cut-off time based on the forecast it has been given by meteorologists, and it is asking passengers to travel earlier 'to avoid being disrupted too much' before the snow becomes heavier. 

    And the weather could become even more extreme later this week as Storm Emma, which is forecast to hit Portugal on Wednesday, potentially bringing strong winds and further heavy snow to the UK on Thursday and Friday.

    Although, 8 inches of snow suddenly appearing on roads in places that aren't prepared to plough snow would probably create some issues

    Three die in crash as the 'Beast from the East' starts sweeping west: 500 schools are closed, motorways in chaos and a FOOT of snow to fall - with temperatures set to plunge to MINUS 15C


    A Renault Clio and Scania lorry collided before dawn at 6.15am on the snowy A15 in Baston, Lincolnshire. Police said the road was busy at the time and several people 'faced the shock of witnessing or coming across the scene'. Other police forces reporting treacherous driving conditions and blocked routes - as the country is hit by Siberian air dubbed the 'Beast from the East'. Essex Police said 17 cars were involved in a pile-up on the A120 between Colchester and Elmsted Market. Footage (left) showed a lorry among the vehicles at a standstill on one side of the road. Meanwhile shelves at an Asda in Gillingham, Kent, have been cleared of bread (top right). Many schools across the country were shut today, including more than 200 in Wales, 131 in Kent and 62 in East Sussex. The sub-zero air has been brought to Britain from Russia (as seen, inset centre).

    First Rome... now Naples is blanketed in snow as the Mediterranean city is 'whitewashed' by its heaviest downfall in 50 years

    • Blast of cold weather from Siberia has hit normally mild southern Europe bringing snow to Rome and Naples
    • Naples found itself covered in a blanket of snow, forcing the southern city's airport to close for 90 minutes
    • Schools and daycare centres were also forced to close with transport in the city severely disrupted
    • City's mayor told people to stay indoors but they took part in snowball fights and played in the snow 

    Naples has seen its heaviest snow in half a century as a blast of Siberian weather continued to send temperatures plunging across Europe.

    The snowfall led to the closure of the city's airport and transport in the city was severely disrupted while schools were forced to close.

    An inaccurate forecast meant that the city's civil emergency department had not initially ordered the closure of its schools.

  • To us in Canada or the northern U.S., this kind of weather is typical for this time of year.  To those who've seldom or never experienced it, this is a disaster. 

    I spent some time in Nevada when I was younger.  In the small desert town where I stayed, I became a sort of informal taxi service.  They experienced the worst winter they had seen in 126 years.  No one had any experience driving on snow and ice, so it was up to me to get them to and from.

    The irony was that I had gone down there so I could have a year without snow.  Most of the ski slopes in western Canada had to close that year due to the unusually mild winter that year.  Not enough snow for the slopes.  Meanwhile, I was in snow that was halfway up my thighs.  This was before the invention of artificial snow.

    Snow storm Emma to UNLEASH weather HELL on UK: Terrifying charts of FURIOUS lashing TODAY

    TERRIFYING winter weather charts show furious Storm Emma unleashing hell across Britain.

    Britain is on RED ALERT for what now threatens to be the most dangerous snowstorm to hit the nation in three decades.

    Storm Emma will spew almost 12 STRAIGHT HOURS of blizzards, torrential snowfall and violent 70mph gales across England through tonight.

    Britons have been warned to stay home and avoid all but essential travel from later this afternoon and into tomorrow with TWO FEET of snow forecast.

    As freezing easterly winds blow in from Siberia, the storm, laden with moisture from the sea will smash the western side of the UK.

    Two masses of air will meet bringing a rare and potentially deadly union which could see parts of England suffer the worst winter whiteout in history.

    The Met Office warned the storm will smash into the southwest coast of Britain from around 3pm today.

    Freezing Britain to be hit by more snow, 90mph winds and now FLOODS as hospitals declare emergency, commuters are stranded overnight in trains and cars and thousands of homes lose power

    Hundreds of motorists were left stranded overnight as extreme weather continued to wreak havoc across Britain today with roads brought to a standstill by winds gusting at up to 90mph causing blizzards and drifting snow. South West England has been particularly badly hit after facing an unprecedented Met Office red warning for snow, with Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust declaring an 'internal critical incident'. Some 4,000 properties in Wales and South West England were left without power this morning as a result of 38 incidents, while thousands more were hit in the North West - including 5,000 in Buxton, Derbyshire, alone.

    Snow warning amid threat from 'Beast from the East Two'

    Forecasters predict that rain will turn to snow on higher ground across much of the east of the UK on Friday evening and Saturday.

    The Met Office has issued a series of long-range yellow warnings for snow as another cold snap moves in from the east.

    Forecasters are predicting that rain will turn to snow on higher ground across much of the east of the UK on Friday evening and into Saturday.

    Heavier snow is expected to fall throughout much of Friday and into Saturday on even higher ground across parts of central, eastern and northern Scotland.

    In addition, snow showers are likely throughout Sunday in the South East, East Anglia and into the East Midlands.

    Frosts are forecast to be widespread in the east and "severe" in some places.

    Meanwhile, yellow warnings have been issued from midday on Wednesday to Thursday noon in Northern Ireland because of the likelihood of persistent and occasionally heavy rain and the resulting danger of flooding.

    In Cornwall and Devon, the Met Office said journey times may be affected by downpours of rain and there was also a flood warning until around midnight on Wednesday.
