'Arctic Swell' To Batter UK As Temperatures Drop To -9C Tonight

'Arctic Swell' To Batter UK As Temperatures Drop To -9C Tonight

Get ready to get your big coat out - temperatures are expected to dip as low as -9C in some parts of the UK, as cold air descends on the country from the North Pole.

It's said that Monday night into Tuesday morning will be the coldest day of the season so far, with frost expected in most parts of the country.

Temperatures last night plummeted to as low as -8.1C in Tulloch Bridge in Inverness-shire.

After recent heavy rainfall, the UK is set for even more flooding this week, with two inches of rain expected to fall. It will start in the west today, with already affected regions across Yorkshire set to be hit again on Thursday.

According to the Met Office, there is a 'risk' of an extremely cold start to tomorrow morning, with temperatures as low as -5C potentially starting off the day.

Nicola Maxey from the Met Office said: "Last night temperatures went down to -8.6C at Tulloch Bridge in Scotland.

"I would expect temperatures to drop at least to similar levels if not a little lower tonight, so -9C is possible although these temperatures are expected at high level rural sites in Scotland and not in towns and cities in southern England.

"The temperatures are expected to hover around freezing or just below. Another point to make is these temperatures are not unusual for November."

More snow showers could hit higher ground in Scotland, and maybe even over the north of England. It will remain unsettled as the week progresses with rain expected to follow.

Heavy rainfall flooded huge swathes of the north lately - last week, a 12-year-old schoolboy and his friend were sucked through a pipe after they slipped in flood water as they made their way home from school.

The floods dragged them underwater and flung them out of the other side of the pipe as they walked to their homes in Lincolnshire last week.

Stuck underwater for a few seconds, the lads couldn't breathe and they, understandably, feared they could lose their lives as they had no idea where they could end up.

Euan Bottomley and Luke Davies were both sucked through the pipe. Euan was sucked in first and Luke then followed as he tried to grab his pal's bag to save him.
