 families are being rescued from deep drifts in the English Peak District as the country braces for its biggest snowstorms iAs reported by the BBC, no less (admittedly regional, but still…), dozens of people, including a two-year-old child, had to be rescued when their vehicles became stranded in deep snow on the roads of the Derbyshire Peak District.

Police and volunteers came to the aid of multiple families on Saturday evening, with similar scenes reported elsewhere in the country, including the 22 people that required rescuing in the neighboring county of Cheshire.

At around 20:00 GMT on Saturday, Derbyshire Police reported “sudden snow” had left dozens of vehicles and their occupants stranded in the Goyt Valley — many were caught off-guard by how quickly the weather changed, reads the BBC article.n a decade+.

Usually, it's the neighbours that come knocking, however, a huge snow wall has formed outside the front door of this Moray family's home - completely blocking access.

The Robertsons from Glenrinnes have watched as snow crept closer towards their home over the last few days.

And now, after several heavy drifts, the family are now unable to use their front door.

Mum Laurie Robertson took to social media to share images of the entrance to her house completely blocked.

Mrs Robertson said: "We are up one of the back roads so if there is snow, more often than not its drifts if there is any wind.

Thames has frozen over for the first time in 60 years.

The Irish sea turned to ice and the Thames froze over for the first time in 60 years after temperatures in Britain plunged to record lows.

Seagulls perched on the frozen river's surface at Teddington, south west London, on Friday as it iced over for the first time since Britain's Big Freeze in 1963. And even the waves on Aldingham beach in Cumbria ground to a halt as the mercury plummeted.

Temperatures in Ravensworth, North Yorkshire, dropped to minus 15.3C overnight on Thursday, a record February low for England. And the cold snap looks set to continue as bookies slashed the odds on Valentine's day being the coldest on record to 7/2.

Images of what appears to be a hovering ship have been captured as the result of a rare optical illusion off the coast of England.

David Morris took a photo of the ship near Falmouth, Cornwall.

BBC meteorologist David Braine said the "superior mirage" occurred because of "special atmospheric conditions that bend light".

He said the illusion is common in the Arctic, but can appear "very rarely" in the UK during winter.

“INSANE DEPTH OF COLD” TO BLAST BRITAIN
« Reply #4 on: April 05, 2021, 06:37:07 PM »
An “insane depth of cold” is set to strike the UK over the Easter weekend, warns the Weather Outlook’s Brian Gaze.

Freezing temperatures and frosts will arrive in Scotland on Thursday, April 1, with “polar spring” conditions engulfing the majority of the country by Good Friday.

Looking further ahead, the mercury is expected to sink even lower during the following week, as a violent kink in the jet stream (associated with the historically low solar activity we continue to experience) delivers Arctic air to the lower-latitudes.

Thermometers could sink to -10C (14F) in northern parts, which would topple all-time daily cold records.

The UK’s lowest-ever recorded temperature for April 5, for example, is the -9C (15.8F) set in 1990, while 1935’s -8.9C (16F) for April 7 could also tumble. In fact, most of the daily benchmarks between early-to-mid April are under threat, including some that have stood for more than a century.

What’s about the hit the UK (as well as western/northern Europe) looks unprecedented, and it’s arriving during a key time of the growing season, too — expect significant crop losses moving forward.

The freezing conditions aren’t fleeting either (unlike the two days of warmth on Mon and Tue); no, the Arctic looks set to park itself anomalously-far south for at least the first-half of April, with latest GFS runs revealing temps will only drop further as the month progresses.

April 13 (shown below) appears particularly cold, with -10C (14F) again possible in northern parts–a reading that would break the UK’s coldest-ever temperature for the date, which stands as the -9.2C (15.4F) set way back in 1890 (note: this particular forecast is a way off, we’ll have to wait and see if it materializes).
