THE Met Office has warned of freezing conditions across the UK as temperatures plunge “very close to zero”.
Brisk north-easterly winds will make it a cold day for many, the forecaster predicted.
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.
