Brits in for 13C plunge as maps show brutal freeze on the way

New weather maps show a brutal freeze is coming at the end of this week, with temperatures plunging to -13C.

Sunday will see parts of Britain drop into the minus temperatures, bringing fog and frost

Maps show the freeze moving in on Sunday (November 19), sticking around until Monday evening.

The Met Office’s long-range forecast predicts that the end of the week will be “rather cold” with overnight frost and fog. The forecaster also said next week could be colder in northern areas.

But don’t expect snow. Grahame Madge, a Met Office spokesman, told the Express: “There is no strong signal for snow within the forecast for the rest of autumn or into early December.

“There is always a chance of wintry conditions on the tops of the Scottish mountains but away from these more extreme conditions there is little prospect of snow at lower elevations.”

This freeze will come after Storm Debi batters the UK, with ‘danger to life’ warnings in place across the country due to severe winds and dangerous large waves.

The country saw similar frosts over Remembrance Day weekend in preparation for the storm, with overnight temperatures plunging to -5C.

The latest weather maps echo a forecast from James Madden, a forecaster for Exacta Weather, who warned that “it is now increasingly likely that we will see at least 1-2 notable wintry blasts from late November and into the first half of December”.

Unfortunately, his forecast warned of an even colder December in the run-up to Christmas.

He said: “A sudden stratospheric warming event from later this month and into December could change that outlook to an even colder and more wintry theme for many parts of the country, and would drastically change the overall outlook for December as a whole.

“There is a chance we could see a number of wintry blasts in the run-up to Christmas.”
