UK weather: Exact date SNOW will blast Britain as frost and fog plunge temperatures to freezing 1C

BRITS are set to be battered by Arctic chills and bitter gales as the sizzling Easter weather is swept away. 

Temperatures are set to plummet across the country, with the UK being hit by wintry flurries of snow. 

Widespread frost even for the South and the odd snow flurry in the North is forecast this week.

The weather is expected to go “into reverse” after the 23C Easter heatwave – potentially marking the coldest May in 25 years.

A seven-day cool burst will see winter’s surprise sting in the tail last into the May Bank Holiday weekend.

Brits will swap shorts for coats as northeasterly windchill makes 11-16C highs for most feel like just 9-14C this week.

According to WXC Charts some parts of England, Scotland and Wales will be hit on May 10 with up to two inches of snow. 

The freezing weather arrives from today, with the Met Office reporting that places in southern Britain will feel like 1C. 

Weathertrending meteorologist John Hammond said: “Rather than turning warmer through the end of the month, we expect a cooling trend.

“North-easterly winds will blow with a vengeance across the UK bringing a fresh and blustery feel.

“Arctic air will be pushed towards us, and with clear skies and light winds, this is a recipe for overnight frosts, even as we approach May.

“I would not rule out even the novelty of a wintry shower or two drifting down from the south, although these would be confined to the higher ground of north Britain.”

Arctic air will sweep across Norway and Sweden making temperatures plummet as the winds are pushed towards the UK. 

Bitter winds will batter the country, but it is likely to be a dry spell wiht no rain forecast for the next ten days. 

Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, said: “The jet stream has dislocated into two halves.

“One of these is to the north of the UK, and the other over the Continent, and in between is a large area of high pressure.

“This will steer winds from Scandinavia, across the North Sea into Britain bringing a return to cool, and at times, cold weather.

“This is the picture for the next week to 10 days at least.”

Brits are being urged to start wrapping up warm after basking in the hottest day of the year over the Easter holidays.
