Tonight sees the mercury plunge into the minus in Birmingham and the West Midlands. There will also be snow further afield.

The regions of Grampian, Highlands and Eilean Siar, will see flurries as temperatures are set to plummet to -6C. The Met Office forecast warned: “Frequent, often heavy showers of rain and sleet will give a risk of icy stretches overnight and into Friday morning away from northern coast roads.

“Showers will turn to snow inland above 150m, with accumulations of 1-2cm.” The Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: “It’s a late taste of winter and not a very spring-like few days.

“Deep low pressure is bringing blustery and wet weather, with cold air sweeping back in from the north. Gardeners should beware if widespread frosts are expected. ”

Looking ahead to the weekend, The Met Office says of Saturday: “A dry but cold start with a widespread frost. Cloud soon bubbling up from mid morning leading to a few isolated showers. Still feeling cold in the moderate wind.”

The outlook for Sunday and into next week says: “A chilly and frosty start Sunday but largely dry with sunny spells. Cloud and rain arriving from the west Monday. Becoming much milder but cloudy with showers Tuesday, rather windy.”
