Britain is set for freezing temperatures for up for three weeks as the mild weather ends.
The mercury could plunge to -15C (5F) in some parts of the country as cold air from Scandinavia blows in.
The Met Office warned there was an ‘increased probability’ of colder conditions until February 4, with the east and the north feeling the big chill the most.
So far this winter England and Scotland’s lowest night-time temperatures winter have been -9.2C (15.4F) at South Newington, in Oxfordshire, and -12.9C (8.8F) in Braemar, Aberdeenshire. But Leon Brown, a forecaster for the
Weather Channel, said: ‘The weather pattern will take a dramatic change from the weekend, with much colder weather arriving from the north-east, blocking the westerly pattern with mild temperatures from the Atlantic.
‘We also expect a number of days when places, particularly in the East and South, struggle to get above 0C (32F).’
