“This will sink sound across the UK through Wednesday, bringing cold weather behind it with temperatures dropping off this week.

“The highs and lows this week will be around 11C in Cornwall, and then going down to -2C in Scotland.

“As the cold front sinks south, the over night temperatures could sink to -4C, and even as cold as -6C in Scotland.

“Through Thursday expect to see some showers, you might see some snow falling , although that is not unheard of in Scotland this time of year.

“There are a couple of wind warnings through Thursday and Friday, with gusts up to 80mph.”
