UK weather: Brits brace for icy freeze with temperatures set to PLUNGE this weekend

“Next week will be off to a chilly but mainly fine start”

Met Office

Met Office forecasters claim there could be widespread frost and even lows of -4C in England. 

It comes as the jet stream drivers southward, bringing rain over Saturday and Sunday. 

Northern Ireland and southern Scotland will endure most of the showers, which the Met Office described as being “wintery at times” with hail. 

Fog will roll across parts of England this morning before sunny spells cut through. 

Tonight, a band of cloud with some rain will push into England and Wales with widespread frost across northern parts. 

On Mother’s Day, tomorrow, most places will be colder with clouds lingering southern parts. 

The chilling conditions are also expected to continue into next week.

A Met Office spokesman said: “Next week will be off to a chilly but mainly fine start on Monday, though it will gradually become more changeable through the week. 

“There will be rain and strong winds at times, mainly in the northwest of the UK, where gales are likely. 

“Some rain is possible in the south too, but there will be more in the way of dry weather. 

“The unsettled weather is likely  to continue into mid-April.”
