A meteorologist fears a threat of a polar vortex he believes will cause havoc across the UK will linger until March.
The same meteorologist accurately predicted the Beast from the East and the Troll from Trondheim.
Experts suggest a sudden stratospheric warning is expected to create the conditions of another bitter cold snap. The same weather system helped cause 2018's relentless snow storms and the Big Freeze in December 2010.

The weather phenomenon could spark another crippling batch of snow - but Brits have been warned that we won't be out of the woods even when Spring should be well on its way.
And while the Met Office long-range forecasts are yet to confirm a period of snow, forecasters says they are keeping regular tabs on the Pole.
The 10-14 day timeframe suggests mid-February potentially could see a widespread blanket.
A repeat of previous years when snow has covered the entire UK in the first week of March cannot be ruled out.
Speak to The Mirror, British Weather Services' Jim Dale said his gut feeling was that we won't be able avoid another wintery battering.
He said: "It's very much a case of watch this space at the moment.
"Sometimes in a dislocation, you get a shift southwards - it's a bit of a lottery as we try to predict the status."
The polar vortex, a powerful weather system surrounding the north pole, tends to contain bitterly cold air and prevents icy blasts from coming our way.
When the vortex is disrupted - in what meteorologists label a Sudden Stratospheric Warming event - we can see spectacularly low temperatures and sometimes heavy snowfall here in the UK.
Mr Dale added: "It's a watching brief to see how it all might unfold but don't think, because it's not long until Spring and the sun is maybe out a little more, that the chance of another blast like we have seen so far are decreasing. They're not."
The Met Office says the polar vortex has already partially collapsed - but only for a short while.
"A sudden stratospheric warming is underway, but only a minor one," a forecaster wrote in a meteorological blog.
