AS PEOPLE ACROSS THE UK PONDER HOW TO CELEBRATE MOTHERS DAY ON SUNDAY THE WEEKEND WEATHER WILL BE SUNNY AND PROBABLY THE CALMEST OF THE YEAR.
Despite 40mph wind gusts in some areas, parts of the country will see temperatures remaining in double figures with plenty of sun this weekend – though it will likely feel chilly due to winds.
But, before that, there’s an unfortunate barrage of subzero chills, morning frost, sleet and snow in some parts. It will remain dry in most parts of the UK throughout Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the mercury is not expected to reach the highs of 16C seen on Wednesday.
Temperatures plunged to as low as -5C degrees overnight, meaning people in Scotland, northern England and Northern Ireland will have woken up to frost on Thursday morning.
Met Office meteorologist Greg Dewhurst said: “The highest temperature recorded on Wednesday was 16C in St James’s Park in London. This is about five degrees above average for this time of year.”
