“This weakens the jet stream but also shifts the winds to be more northerly.

“The result is the wet but much colder outlook for the end of the month, which is even cold enough for snow in northern Scottish hills. “

Freezing conditions will also be experienced in parts of the north of England.

For the rest of the country, temperatures will range from 7C (44F) in East Anglia to 1C in Newcastle.
