BBC Weather presenter Carol Kirkwood said it has provisionally been the frostiest April in 60 years where “somewhere in the UK has had a night frost every single day this month so far”. Temperatures will plummet this week as an Arctic weather front slams the top of Scotland and will push southwards. Low pressure will pull away the warm air leaving scattered showers, rain and colder temperatures not exceeding 14 on Wednesday. Wednesday will be much cooler than previous days but as Thursday arrives, parts of the country will brighten up but remain cold.

The weather presenter said: “Today we’re are looking at scattered showers some of them merging to give longer spells of rain”

“And also still got that chilly wind.”

“Low pressure is driving our weather, it’s providing a lot of showers and some rain as well.”

She explained how a village in the Vale of Glamorgan in Wales has had nearly an inch of rain this morning.

Going into Wednesday afternoon it will be 14 degrees in London, 10 in Cardiff, 11 in Newcastle, and 12 in Aberdeen.

Bit Kirkwood stressed “temperatures are starting to slip” this week as a cold block of air travels southwards from the Arctic chilling Brits after a warm spell sent temperatures rocketing to 18 in some areas of the U.K. on Tuesday.
