LONDON Jan 9: You may need all the layers you can get as temperatures are expected to plummet from next week with some regions potentially facing blizzard conditions.
From Thursday onwards, temperatures will hit minus digits with widespread frost descending on the nation, according to Metro News. This could make driving difficult as frost is expected to hit many of the main roads.
The majority of the frost will hit Scotland and the north, with the potential of blizzards to sweep into the highest parts of both regions.
A Met Office spokesman said: ‘Monday will be wet and windy, as cold winds sweep their way across the south east, where gales are likely. Showers are likely in Scotland and Northern Ireland and will hit north west England later on in the day.
‘These may turn to snow in the Scottish mountains while there is a risk of severe gales in the most exposed area.
‘Wednesday will be even colder with showers coming from the north in the afternoon. ‘Thursday sees rain in the south clearing to a mixture of sunshine and showers across the country.
‘These showers will turn increasingly wintry, even to lower levels in the north, where they will be most frequent.
‘It’ll be windy with coastal gales, and turning colder with frosts likely overnight. Temperatures will be highs of 4 and 6 degrees and lows of 0 and -1 degrees.
‘But it will feel a lot colder than it actually is, so certainly wrap up warm.’ Friday will see gales around coasts and the hills which could cause problems, there’s likely to be blizzard conditions, and high tides forecast for north sea.
