BRITAIN is braced for a bitterly cold end to the week, with temperatures plunging to sub-zero levels.
Snow is forecast at lower levels in Scotland while the rest of the UK is set to experience the first “real taste of winter” of late 2020.
For Thursday Met Office meteorologist Alex Deakin said: “Finally a cold spell… We’ll all notice that wind in the morning because it’s bringing colder air.”
“It’s going to feel much closer to freezing particularly across north-east Scotland where there will be some snow showers even to lower levels, not expected to build up or cause any problems but a definite taste of winter or be it very brief.”
Thankfully the temperatures will have picked up slightly by the weekend, before an extremely changeable front moves in next week.
