The week ahead’s looking to get colder
BRITS hit the beaches yesterday as mercury hit 20C, bringing plenty of blue skies and sunshine in most parts of the UK. The dry and settled weather should continue into Sunday for most.
In a massive weather U-turn, forecasters have warned the week ahead is set to get colder with temperatures of -3C across isolated rural areas of Scotland.
By Tuesday, the Met Office says a cold air mass will push into the north of the UK, before slowly sinking towards the south. Wintry showers are also on the cards for most of the country, and will be most frequent in the north and east.
Its Chief Meteorologist, Paul Gundersen, says: “Although the UK has had a good deal of fine and settled March weather in recent days, a change is on the way from the middle of next week with colder air spreading down from the north and the increasing likelihood of rain for most areas.”
He added: “With the influence of some unsettled weather, we’ll be seeing a marked drop in temperatures for most with colder air arriving from the north.
“This will see maximum temperatures drop into single figures for many areas, and below freezing overnight.”
Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, also adds we’ll all be feeling the brunt of the colder air and, “will be back in coats and jumpers.”
Looking further ahead into April, Brits can expect even more unsettled weather, including thundery conditions and hail around the middle of the month.
