The temperature across London has dropped to chilling temperatures.

Although the winter sun is shining across London, there are brisk winds and isolated showers which mean the weather feels extremely cold.

On Tuesday, the Met Office predicts there to be variable cloud and sunny spells, with rain moving into western regions, perhaps spreading further east at times.

Showers will include a chance of hail and generally, the weather will particularly brisk.

The maximum temperature for today is likely to be around 6C.

The rest of the week will be still breezy but milder than Tuesday.

Sunshine will spread across the country, turning hazy on Wednesday.

On Thursday through Saturday, there will be possible outbreaks of rain, spreading east early Friday and clearing to sunny spells later.

Sunday, February 1, is due to be on the mild side as well, with outbreaks of rain and showers, moving to gradually more settled conditions into next week.

A Met Office spokeswoman said: “We cannot accurately predict the weather past February 24 at the moment as the scientific measures do not exist to do so.

“This week temperatures are due to be milder generally, with temperatures hitting 7C to 8C today and rising up to 9C to 10C tomorrow.

“The weekend should see the weather temperature become even milder hitting 12C to 13C, although it may be wet and windy.

“Generally January has been a milder month than average, with London’s January mean temperature being around 2C above average at 7.6C.

“The mild weather looks likely to continue into February, with temperatures remaining around the normal level or slightly above average.

“But that does not mean there will not be cold spells throughout the month as well.”

The Met Office does not predict snow to hit London in the next month, however, weather forecaster WX Charts does believe Britain’s capital city could see some snow.

According to WX Charts, there is likely to be snowfall in London on Thursday, February 6.

The weather forecast’s winter overview chart shows a light smattering of snowfall arriving on Thursday around midday.

The snow is also expected across much of the country including Newcastle, Leeds, Luton and as far south as Brighton.
