Europe will experience a “Beast from the East” weather pattern next week as cold air is pulled from Siberia into the region and may cause snow over several days in the U.K.  

Temperatures will drop over the weekend and be seven to 14 degrees below normal by Monday over England and Wales, not counting windy conditions that will make it feel even colder, AccuWeather reported.

By midweek, lows could be 19 to 26 degrees, prompting officials to warn the homeless to seek shelter and farmers to bring livestock inside for protection.

“On average, you get a ‘Beast from the East’ that impacts the U.K. twice a year,” AccuWeather meteorologist Tyler Roys said. “However, what makes this situation unusual is the intensity of the cold air for this time of year that is getting pulled down from Siberia.” 

Meteorological spring begins March 1, so the unusually cold weather comes at a time when temperatures usually get a little warmer, AccuWeather reported. Snow may fall at one to three inches a day between Monday and Thursday. 

“Sea-effect snow will stream from east to west over the U.K. Monday into Thursday,” Roys said. Ireland in the west is expected to be spared the worst of the cold and snow, AccuWeather reported. 

Officials have issued several snow warnings, saying that power outages and mobile phone service could be impacted, The Telegraph reported. Travel delays and school closings are also expected. 

Normal temperatures in London at the end of February are around 50 degrees Fahrenheit, but are expected to be in the lower 20s next week, AccuWeather reported.
