Brits to freeze under ‘Arctic dome’ which will end sunshine with snow and ice

Some areas of the UK will endure subzero temperatures after a 2,000-mile 'Arctic dome' of cold air brings snow and ice to Brits.

Those enjoying the sunshine and milder temperatures will have to say goodbye to warmer weather before temperatures plummet in some parts of Britain.

Cold weather is set to return tomorrow, Wednesday, after warmer temperatures on Tuesday.

In some parts, the mercury is expected to reach a balmy 16C, especially in southern England.

In Scotland, people could see highs of 14C, Aidan McGivern, Met Office forecaster said.

Parts of the south-east will see rain and drizzle in the morning and a sunny afternoon.

But Mr McGivern warned: "It won't always be sunny, it won't always be warm and it certainly won't always be dry."

The cold snap will bring blustery winds especially in Scotland and along the North Sea coasts.

After Brits experience the first signs of Spring this month, the temperature will turn colder again from Wednesday.

Later on in the week, eastern and northern areas of Scotland, England and Wales will be battered by rain.

Mercury will plunge, and Northumberland, Cumbria, Liverpool, Manchester and Scotland seeing snow, according to Netweather.

London, Bath and Kent could also see the white stuff, and temperatures in the south east could reach a low of -3C or -5C.

The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said: “It will feel more like winter than spring, with polar air expected in coming weeks.”

Yorkshire Dales was blanketed by snow over the weekend, and Mother's Day saw 70mph gusts batter coastal areas.

However, towards the end of the month, unsettled weather with spells of rain and strong winds is expected to cross parts of the UK.

The 2,000-mile 'Arctic dome' is made up of cold air and will blow in from Scandinavia from Wednesday.

The weather will appear colder-than-average in March and early April as a result, due to the Arctic air from Greenland.

Bookmaker Coral cut odds on snow bringing a White Easter and making it the coldest on record to 2/1.

The bookies’ spokesman, John Hill, said: “Get ready for a white Easter.”

Ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond of weathertrending said: “An injection of Arctic air will see a chill as the week progresses.

“Temperatures may remain slightly below-par for much of the time later in the month. Snow cannot be discounted, with winds being more northwesterly than southwesterly.”

While a Met Office spokesman warned: “Temperatures are expected to be at or slightly-below average later in March and at the turn of the month.”
