BRITAIN has been hit by sub-zero weather with fierce winds bringing a -2C Arctic blast.
North-easterly winds are bringing bitter temperatures but there will be several bright, sunny days ahead of us despite the plunge.
The Met Office also warned of rain and frost over the coming week due to “nagging” winds.
Aidan McGivern, Met Office Meteorologist, said: “Significant changes in the weather are on the way from Monday so let’s focus on the first four days for now because that’s relatively straight forward.”
“A few showers around yes but also plenty of bright days and chilly nights heading into the weekend,” he added.
