Britain to be hit by FOUR INCHES of snow within weeks as 'Beast from the East' smashes into UK
Odds of a white Christmas have been slashed
It could be a white Christmas in Britain as meteorologists have predicted four inches of snow within a matter of weeks.
Experts have spotted patterns emerging that suggest a major freeze on the way.
Ice cold winds from the east, alongside bitter and heavy rain will likely push temperatures below zero as the country heads into December.
Speaking to the Express, British Weather Services’ Jim Dale said: “There is a change in weather patterns now looking likely at the start of December.
“If this happens, we are in a classic position to get a cold flow in from the east, and with that, snow, ice and very cold winds.”
The meteorologist added: “This is an indicator of a Beast from the East, and although it has not woken up fully yet, it is safe to say the beast is opening its eyes.”

Britain came to a halt in 2018 when the previous Beast from the East struck.
Looking ahead to this weekend, the Met Office are predicting further unsettled conditions, with blustery, occasionally heavy showers and sunny spells, with any showers most frequent in the northwest.
Weather forecasts further ahead show temperatures dropping across Britain, and up to four inches of snow could settle across parts of Scotland, with lighter flurries across England and Wales.
With snow on the way, bookmakers have started to slash the odds of a snowy festive period, with Coral spokesman John Hill telling the Express it is now “odds-on for there to be a white Christmas this year.”
Yellow weather warnings are currently in places across the country, with Scotland and Northern Ireland facing strong winds, and Wales and south-west England set to experience heavy rain and winds on Thursday.
