UK braces for Storm Rina with temperatures set to plummet this weekend

The UK could be bombarded by snow this weekend as Storm Rina builds strength in the Atlantic Ocean – and freezing temperatures are expected to strike Britain as a result.

The Met Office has warned that the storm will bring us the coldest winter for half a decade, with strong gusts of 50mph and heavy rainfall due to strike much of the north, sending temperatures plunging overnight.

Oli Claydon, forecaster for the Met Office, said: “A cold front is moving across the country and that will really be the story for the next few days.

“By the end of the week we will really start to notice this and we will have some low daytime temperatures.

“It will start to feel raw and cold during the day and by the end of next weekend we could start to see wintry showers to lower levels.”

Temperatures as cold as -5°C will sweep down from Scotland and covering the rest of the UK by Sunday. The warnings come after long-range forecasters predicted that arctic winds could see temperatures drop to a shocking -10°C in parts of the country before the end of November.
