UK weather forecast – Brits bask in glorious 18C sunshine today – but there's a sub-zero cold snap just days away

BRITS are basking in glorious sunshine today – but a cold snap is right around the corner.

Temperatures will rise to nearly 20C in parts of the UK as the country's summer warm-up continues.

But the balmy 18C conditions won't last – as the Met Office warns of a sub-zero plunge at the start of the next week.

London is expected to face temperatures as low as 4C, while parts of the north, Scotland and areas in Belfast could drop to below 0C.

Met Office forecaster Terry Scholey told the Express that some more rural areas might see temperatures drop to -3C during overnight frosts early next week.

Mr Scholey said: "Light winds may allow some short-lived mist or fog patches and a touch of frost, this mostly over Scotland, to the South of Belfast and across parts of northern England.

"Here temperatures could fall close to freezing, but 2 to 6C will be a more general minimum."

He added: "Top temperatures 10 to 12C in the North and West and 14 to 16 locally 17C in the East and South."

Forecaster Tom Morgan warned that it isn't "great news for gardeners".

He told MailOnline: "They may have spent the weekend planting beneath the sun but we could see patchy frosts by Wednesday which could undo all of their hard work.

"Some rural spots could drop to -3C through the first part of the week.

"It will feel more spring-like during the day, despite the occasional showers, but not in the mornings or overnight."

WXCharts are even predicting snow before the end of April, hitting the north of Scotland on Friday April 29 and the south of England and Wales from Sunday May 1.

The dip follows from the hottest day of the year so far, recorded over the bank holiday when temperatures rose over 23C in London.
