SUB-zero temperatures are set to sweep parts of the UK this week with the mercury plummeting to -7Cm amid snow and ice weather warnings.
Yellow weather warnings have been issued in Scotland as the UK saw an extreme change in the weather today – with more to follow from Tuesday into the coming week.
The Met Office said that no part of the country would be ‘immune’ from snowfall this week as as a ‘winter comeback’ will bring cold temperatures and wintry showers across Britain.
There will be a “massive step down” in temperatures tonight into tomorrow – as all areas across the UK approach freezing.
Grahame Madge, a spokesperson for the Met Office told the Sun Online: “The real cold is coming in late on Sunday and into Monday, and by Monday most places in UK will be subject to this Arctic plunge.
“It will be bringing wintery showers to northern England and Scotland, but we could also see wintery showers anywhere sporadically, and what we will see is likely to be hail, sleet, or snow.”
