BRITAIN is braced for sub-zero temperatures ‘within hours’ as an early winter hits.
The Met Office warned of freezing conditions across the UK as temperatures plunge.
BBC Weather meteorologist Ben Rich added that while parts of Scotland will wake up to a freezing cold start, temperatures elsewhere in the UK will hover from 5-8C.
But a brisk breeze will “make it feel rather chilly”, adds Ben.
The grim weather looks set to last through to the end of the month as October’s early winter remains unrelenting.
