THE Met Office has warned “rollercoaster” weather will hit Britain this week with torrential downpours and floods on the way.
The UK was gripped by a deep freeze over the weekend as temperatures dropped to -10C – but by Wednesday the mercury could leap back up as high as 12C in some parts of the country.
But sub-zero temperatures and treacherous roads have led to widespread yellow warnings for ice overnight into today.
Met Office meteorologist Simon Partridge said: “It’s a bit of a rollercoaster from cold and wintry conditions to wet and windy ones.
“We are keeping an eye on rainfall totals because there are some areas that are very sensitive to rainfall and there is further possible flooding as we go through the second half of the week.”
