UK weather forecast tomorrow – Brits to be gripped by Norwegian deep freeze with 4 days of sub-zero temperatures

WARM springtime weather will remain on hold as the country is set to be gripped by an icy Norwegian deep freeze.

The freezing air from Northern Europe will bring with it four days of sub-zero temperatures.

Forecasters have warned of lows of about -10C tonight in parts of Scotland. Minus 2C is expected in the Central Belt.

This comes as weather charts suggest Brits could see a white Easter this year. - but the Met Office have rejected the claims.

New charts forecast that there is a 50 percent chance of snow falling across northern Scotland and a 10-25 percent chance for the rest of the UK.

Temperatures in the coming weeks are to go as low as -4C with snow predicted to fall on March 12.

But the Met Office has dismissed widespread claims there will be a White Easter, saying it is "impossible" to forecast specific snowfall that far ahead.
