Cold temperatures in UK expected with Arctic winds set to chill the nations air

Brits are being warned to be braced for Arctic winds that will work their way southwards during the first part of this week.

Cooler than normal temperatures for the end of September are being forecast, especially for those regions that will be battered by stronger winds, the Mirror reports.

Met Office meteorologist Tom Morgan said: "This cold front will introduce much colder air originating from the Arctic, so temperatures will actually fall to below average values through Monday and Tuesday.

"And, especially if you're in that wind, there will be quite a marked wind chill."

Today is expected to see a mixture of sunshine and rain, with heavy showers set to hit parts of the UK.

Morgan added: "Rain (from Sunday) should be clearing in southern areas and, then, we're all into a much cooler, blustery air mass with a mixture of sunshine and showers. Some of these could be on the heavy side."

UK weather maps from Netweather, meanwhile, are suggesting that the country could see temperatures surge up past 20C again at the start of next month.

It is being predicted that the weather maps will turn red again in a welcome temporary boost for millions of Britons who are dreading the upcoming long winter months.
