Due to a cold spell of weather sweeping across the nation, the mercury is set to fall to -4C in parts of Scotland. Areas around Inverness and Aberdeen will see the coldest temperatures on January 30. In the north of England, in particular areas around Yorkshire, the mercury will fall to -2C, charts state.

For the northeast of England and areas of the Midlands, temperatures will drop to -1C.

For areas around the southwest and east of England, the mercury will fall to 0C later this month.

The east coast of England may also see snow with probability levels reaching between 20-25 percent.

Ahead of this plunge in temperatures, forecasters have warned the mercury may drop later this week.

A Met Office spokesperson said: “There will be some chilly nights.

“There is a chance of a few snow showers on Wednesday across the norther isles of Scotland and north east Scotland but they will be quite few and far between.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Dan Rudman added: “Temperatures in central and southern England are expected to trend downwards from Thursday, with overnight minimum temperatures possibly getting to -4C in some rural areas, but widespread below-freezing conditions elsewhere overnight in the following days.

“This will result in some harsh frosts and possible freezing fog in some places.

“Temperatures will stay subdued through the next few days from Thursday in the alerted areas, with highs likely to remain in the mid-to-low single figures through the weekend, especially in places where any fog or low cloud lingers throughout the day.”

Such are the bitter conditions, parts of Yorkshire and Wales will see a national low of -2C next Friday.

For the south coast and southwest of England, the mercury will remain at -1C on Friday morning.
