UK weather forecast: BONE-CHILLING cold front moves in for -5 degree Mother's Day FREEZE

Britons are braced for a bone-chilling start to the day today as they celebrate Mothering Sunday. There will be a widespread frost in the north of the nation, the Met Office has warned. The outlook for the rest of the day will be dominated by cloud in the south and smatterings of showers in the north, the Met Office said.

Commenting on the conditions, Met Office meteorologist Becky Mitchell said: “Temperatures fell to around -5 degrees in the countryside this morning and it is a chilly start with a widespread frost for Northern Ireland and parts of northern England too.”

The weather expert added: “It is a much cloudier picture across the south compared to recent days.

“That blanket of cloud lingering into the afternoon but there is a chance we could see some brighter spells by the middle part of the day.

“Across the north it is a fairly bright day on the whole cloud building as we head into the afternoon but still plenty of sunny spells and for all of us it is a much cooler day than recently.”

Temperatures will fall to between 9 and 12 degrees Celsius, generally, Ms Mitchell advised, with highs of 14 degrees Celsius in the far south west.

She said: “It could get up to 14 degrees in parts of Cornwall in the best of the sunshine.”

Sunday evening will remain “largely dry for most of us” according to Ms Mitchell who warned showers would continue “across the far north of Scotland”.

She said: “Some of them could be wintry - particularly towards the northern isles.”

The weather expert explained “overall” Sunday night will be “quiet” with temperatures “falling away again”.

She said: “Come Monday morning it should be a chilly one.

“A patch of frost out there as well.

“Monday overall looks to be fairly dry for eastern areas but it will turn changeable.”

Next week will be “cooler”, “changeable” with “frost and ice” according to the Met Office.
