UK weather forecast: Britain braced for deep freeze as temperatures plummet next week

However, there will be frost in some parts of the country as winter comes closer with freezing conditions expected next week. Met Office meteorologist Greg Dewhurst gave the latest update. He said: “Plenty of sunshine to come across the UK through today.

“But there will be a few showers in the north and the west and then with clearing skies there will be widespread frost for many of us.”

The morning will begin with showers in Scotland and Northern Ireland which will move into the northwest of Wales and England.

There is expected to be lots of sunshine elsewhere in the country though the beginning of the day is forecasted to be “chilly”.

Mr Dewhurst said: “Showers will continue across the north and the west.”

Scotland is expected to see a lot of wind.

There is the possibility of some hail.

Regarding temperatures Mr Dewhurst forecast: “In towns and cities, 9 - 13C (48 - 55F) as a maximum, so yes, down on what we’ve seen over the last few days.”

The northern coastal areas will see showers in the evening and overnight.

The west will be hit too and potentially also parts of central Scotland.

Mr Dewhurst warned: “We could see lows of -3 or -4C (27 or 25F) leading to a frosty start Monday morning.”

The week ahead will see more sunshine during the days.

Frost and fog could dominate the nights, however.
