UK to see ‘coldest temperature of season so far’ within days as mercury plummets

Britain is set to see its coldest temperature of the season so far within a few days, as the mercury is set to plummet.

The UK's coldest temperature so far this autumn has been -5.9C, which was recorded in Aviemore, Scotland, just a few days ago, but it is reported that this will change soon.

November has also seen record-breaking amounts of rainfall, but that is set to stop in the last few days of the month, with high pressure forecast to take charge, bringing dry but chilly weather.

The mercury may drop even further than -5.9C in rural Scotland in the days ahead, with the rest of the country also feeling the cold bite.

Met Office meteorologist Becky Mitchell told The Independent: “That was a very localised cold spot whereas actually these low temperatures are going to be more widespread throughout this week,” and added that “it will feel a lot colder [than] it has done recently”.

“That’s mainly because we’re getting quite a brisk easterly wind developing, so cold air’s going to come in from Scandinavia.

“Temperatures have been as low as -2C in Exeter so far this autumn, but we could see temperatures as low as -3C in southern England this week.

“Day-time temperatures will be stuck in low-to-mid single figures in some parts of the country too, particularly where it’s foggy, so it will likely be the coldest spell of the autumn so far.”
