Arctic Blast To Herald Return Of Winter Weather



Widespread Frost As The UK Braces Itself For Severe Cold Weather There is a big change on the way for Britain’s weather, which has seen exceptionally mild conditions recently.

Next week, a north to north-westerly flow will develop taking Arctic air across the UK, making it feel much colder than recently and more like winter.

From next Wednesday, daytime temperatures will fall to below the seasonal average, ranging from freezing in parts of the north to 5°C in the south.

Overnight frosts can be expected, too, with the risk of ice and freezing fog.

The change in temperature will also bring much drier conditions, with high pressure close to the UK.

That will be welcome news to flood-hit communities, after December 2015 became the wettest ever month since records began in 1910.

The north to north-westerly flow is likely to bring a few showers, though, especially to exposed coastal counties.

It will be cold enough for some snow, but it’s still too early for exact details.
