UK cold weather: New weather maps pinpoint exact date Arctic freeze will cause 17C drop

Shocking weather maps have pinpointed the exact date the UK will be hit by an arctic freeze that will see temperatures plunge from highs of 17C on April 13 to lows of -1C the following day.

The weather maps from WXCharts show that on Saturday, the likes of London, Canterbury, and other cities in the south east of England are likely to enjoy temperatures as high as 17C.

The most ferocious temperatures will be felt in East Anglia and on the North Norfolk coast in towns such as Blakeney and Wells next to the Sea.

Further to the west, cities such as Birmingham and Milton Keynes will also enjoy mild April temperatures experiencing 15 and 14C respectively. Further north, the likes of Edinburgh and Aberdeen are forecast to bask in a mild 10 and 11C.

The real switch comes just 24 hours later on April 14 when temperatures plunge. Across the Scottish Highlands, sub-zero temperatures and snow are predicted to hit and fall on high ground.

Weather maps also suggest snow could fall around Newcastle, most of the Midlands, and in central and western parts of Wales. People living and travelling further south are less likely to see such a dramatic shift.

In London and the south east, temperatures will fall far into single figures. The likes of Reading, Swindon and Bristol could experience lows of two or three degrees.

Meanwhile, the towns and villages of Norfolk and Suffolk will be subject to single-figure temperatures too that will make the weather feel markedly different from the day before.

According to the Met Office, April 14 could mark the start of another period of unsettled weather in the UK. In their long-range forecast for the second half third of the month, they said that wet and windy weather will be mixed with drier spells.

They explained: “The weather is likely to remain generally unsettled, at least in the north, with the focus for the most persistent rain and showers across north-western parts of the UK.

“Here, rain could be heavy at times, especially in upland areas, with some snow mainly over high ground. This colder, northerly flow will possibly give way to something milder from the Atlantic, but timing on this change is uncertain.

“Windy spells of weather are also likely, particularly in the north. Southern and eastern areas are will see some decent spells of drier weather with some good sunshine at times.”

Met Office 5-day forecast: Tuesday, April 9th – Saturday, April 13th

This Evening and Tonight:

Any residual rain clearing eastwards, and showers easing, leaving clear skies for many. Turning chilly with lighter winds. Cloud and rain arriving into the far west by dawn. Isolated frost patches, mostly in the north.

Wednesday:

A drier to start for many before rain and cloud continues to spread eastwards through Wednesday, turning particularly heavy in northwest Scotland. Windy in the west, and milder than Tuesday.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Turning drier, albeit rather cloudy, in the south on Thursday and Friday, but remaining changeable in the north. Heavy showers, mainly in the north, on Saturday. Turning warmer.
