A spokeswoman for the Met Office said temperatures in the coming days will be lower than the average for the time of year.

Tonight, some parts of the UK will be between minus 3C and minus 4C (26.6F and 24.8F).

Friday will also be cold, with widespread frost overnight into Saturday. There may be snow on Sunday. The colder spell is due to easterly winds from Scandinavia.
