AFTER a frosty start, the UK is set for another day of glorious sunshine before snow hits eastern parts of the country on Thursday.
While it is expected to be another fine, sunny day temperatures are due to be slightly down from yesterday.
The late end of the week will see temperatures gradually fall until easterly coasts are hit by sleet, hail and potentially snow from a weather system coming in from the North Sea.
As we reach the weekend, frozen air from the Arctic is expected to move outwards across the country.
Single figures temperatures will be felt widely, and “almost anywhere” in the country snow showers will fall.
Night temperatures will drop to -4C in the southern half of the UK.
Clare Nasie, from the Met Office, said: “Yet again we will see a fine day across England and Wales but with subtle changes.
“The winds coming in from a cold north sea, high pressure is built quite strong across northern and central areas of Europe and we are inheriting that air and those conditions.
“So on Thursday, we are likely to see lower temperatures particularly towards the east for Manchester and even Leeds we could see a 15 or 16 [degrees].”
The weather will become colder over the weekend as brisk northern winds bring cold air across Britain.
Showers will arrive in the extreme north extending down the eastern part of the UK on Saturday, becoming wintry.
The north of the UK will be cloudy with patchy light rain.
