Britain is bracing for an “Arctic plunge” as a ten-day chill is set to sweep through the country from today.
The snow is forecast up and down the UK with the cold creeping in over the weekend which comes with lows of -7C. Lows of -7C are expected later next week when ice and frost start to sweep across the country.
Meanwhile, the Met Office has said shots of Arctic air will hit our shores this week – “meaning much colder and wetter weather”.
The weather agency said that are you noticing the change in temperature? Several shots of Arctic air are on the way to the UK later this week as the jet stream dips southwards bringing much #colder and wetter weather.
The UK is set to get snow this week as an Arctic plunge sends the mercury down. The forecasters have warned temperatures will plummet to a very cold -2C due to an arctic blast.
Met Office experts predict some regions will see the white stuff before the end of the week as most regions struggle to stay above freezing point.
The north will be hit hardest where the “heavy and wintry showers” will fall. The frost is also expected to cover cars and pavements across the north, and other regions, as the week continues.
Most of England will also feel the chill as temperatures across the nation drop. Some areas will feel the freeze more, like in Wales where an icy -2C is expected.
It will remain bright and sunny for most places, but that sunshine will not indicate warmth.
Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said that it could not imagine a better weather pattern for cold weather fans, with forecast models showing a northerly straight from the Arctic next week.
It turns much colder from the north later in the weekend. From Sunday, rain is likely in the North, with some snow across higher ground, possibly reaching low levels at times.
