LONDON Oct 22: Sub-zero temperatures will reach some parts of the UK by the end of this week, bringing to an end a stretch of mild autumn weather.
Temperatures look likely to fall below zero in some parts of the country by Friday, with forecasters saying a cold blast will make parts of the UK feel like they have been plunged into an early winter.
Parts of the UK enjoyed warm weather and blue skies during the weekend – with temperatures hitting 20C (68F) in parts of the south-east. However, by the end of the week, some areas in Scotland and northern England can expect snow showers and gale-force winds.
Strong winds will batter parts of northern England and Scotland, reaching 50mph in exposed and coastal regions. Northern Scotland, especially Orkney and Shetland, are likely to be the worst hit.
Temperatures will be low enough for wintry showers in northern England, particularly across the Lake District and the Pennines. There is also a risk of high tides in the north-east of the country.
