After the mild start to this year, a blast of Arctic air with northerly winds is likely to bring colder temperatures to the British Isles for the second half of January, reports the GRITIT weather desk.
A sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) of the atmosphere refers to a quick jump in temperatures up high in our stratosphere, which usually leads to a bitterly cold snap and winter storms. At the time of writing, a major sudden stratospheric warming event is currently underway, and at GRITIT we're prepared for a significant cold snap in the second half of January.
