UK weather: Freezing -3C temperatures to cover parts of country as pub gardens reopen

Freezing temperatures as low as -3C will drape parts of the country in time for the re-opening of pubs, shops and outdoor attractions.

The Met Office has said Monday morning will be ‘another cold day for all’ but with pockets of sunshine in the north.

And there will be damp seats in many outdoor beer garden as showers will lash parts of the south and west throughout the day.

It comes as beer gardens and outdoor dining areas, non-essential shops, hairdressers, indoor gyms, swimming pools, nail salons and zoos in England are all open again for the first time since lockdown.

After a cold April weekend where many areas experienced a light dusting of snow, sub zero temperatures as low as -3C are expected in the morning across Britain.

Forecasters said that the day will start with a ‘widespread and sharp frost’ forming.

A Met Office meteorologist added: “Another cold day to come for all but lots of sunshine across Scotland and northern England but top temperatures coming in to around 7 to 11 degrees.

“As we go into Monday night it’s going to be another cold and frosty one.”

Heavy rain and hill snow is also forecast for Northern Ireland and west Wales early in the day.

No flood warnings were in place on Sunday night, but the Environment Agency has issued six lower-level alerts for scattered locations in south-west England where flooding is possible.

Meanwhile, people in northern England and Scotland can expect to see a cold but sunny and dry start to the week.
