The UK weather is set to ‘reverse’ this week with snow flurries and widespread frost.

Met Office’s Greg Dewhurst said the weather in the new week was likely to be sunny and dry for many, although it would see temperatures drop as the week progressed

Temperatures over the UK could drop to the mid single digits over the next week with the risk of frost as an oncoming cold threatens the coldest start to May in 25 years.

Despite the 23C Easter heatwave, forecasters have warned the weather will ‘reverse’ from next week. Widespread frost is expected in the south and flurries of snow in the north.

Met Office meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said the weather in the new week was likely to be sunny and dry for many.

However, it would bring a drop in temperature as the week progressed, he said.

“It looks like high pressure is dominating again, as we have seen so far throughout April, meaning another dry week with lots of solar spells is on the way for many,” Mr Dewhurst said.

“Temperatures will drop under these clear skies,” he continued.

“Temperatures will have dropped overall in the last few days. We’ve seen highs of 19 or 20 in the past few days.

“But today we’re seeing Monday highs of around 16 or 17 degrees Celsius, a bit chilly on some east coasts, back here at around 11 to 13 degrees Celsius.

“We could see temperatures drop to the mid single digits with perhaps a hint of frost in some northern parts of England and the Glens of Scotland.

“But overall most places will remain frost free as the north east breeze eases but is still a bit windy on some coasts.”

As the week progresses the weather would become cloudier with a higher chance of showers.

Most of the UK would experience chilly evenings with a risk of frost in rural areas.

Northerners can expect nights as low as -5°C, while in the south the temperature can drop to as low as -2°C.

The temperature drop comes as experts have predicted a 1,000-mile front could mean Britain’s coldest start to May in 25 years.

Ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond of Weather Trending said: “Mercury will reverse, with a cooler trend into late April.

“Fresh waves of arctic air mean there’s a good chance, even in southern Britain, that temperatures will fall near or below freezing.

“A wintry shower or two is not ruled out later in the week, most likely at higher elevations in the north.”

The drop below zero will mean the UK is even colder than Stockholm’s 3C nights, with the freezing forecast set to last seven days into the May bank holiday weekend.
