SNOW could fall in the UK next week as temperatures plummet to a bone-chilling -5C.

The white stuff is expected to fall in central Scotland early next week, with overnight temperatures across Monday and Tuesday reaching -5C in some parts.

According to the Met Office there is also risk of some snow in higher parts of northern England.

Though not as cold as Scotland, the south will be blasted with the big chill on Monday night, with London expected to reach freezing point.

There will also be widespread frost throughout the rest of the UK.

The Met Office has not issued any weather warnings for the Baltic temperature yet but suggest the forecast could change in the coming days.

Temperatures will be milder across the UK this weekend with the warmest spots reaching 9C.
