BRITS are set to see a gloomy day with heavy rain in many parts as an Arctic ‘freeze’ hits the country.
Today will bring cloud and rain across much of England and Wales though there will be bright spells in the south-east, says the Met Office.
Temperatures are set to begin to plunge before falling to 14C by the weekend.
BBC meteorologist Susan Powell said: “By mid-week, it will be much cooler, much windier, and for many, wetter as well.
“Areas of low pressure will take over from the Atlantic, eventually dragging in Arctic air,” she added.
