FLOOD-HIt Britain will be plunged into the depths of winter tomorrow with Arctic temperatures and a blast of snow.
And experts say that once the big chill takes hold, there will be no let-up in the cold for the rest of the year.
After the torrential rain of the last few days, the first significant snowfall of the winter is expected in the North tomorrow as icy air from the North Pole causes the thermometer to plummet to -15C.
Wintry showers are likely as far south as the Midlands by Sunday. There is even a chance of an early dusting of snow on higher ground in London and the South-east as the whole of the UK prepares for a month of widespread harsh frosts, bitter winds and icy conditions.
Jonathan Powell, forecaster for Vantage Weather Services, said: “Once the rain clears, it is then into a proper cold lockdown. “Temperatures will fall below freezing across the whole country with some exposed places touching -15C with wind chill. We will see snow in the North, moving further south by the weekend, with the Midlands and Wales likely to see wintry showers. There is even the chance of snow over high ground further south in London.”
